Another nice Lathe build

Bit fancier than I would have built. But still a nice build and the author has plans available. http://www.rcturka.com/wooden-lathe-making-pdf.html

Making a handheld planer into a tabletop

Nice build, the author made a nice jig for the planer to basically plane down boards to a given size.

Nice knob jig

Nice build for a jig to make knobs. Me…I just hand cut them for now. This build is nice cause it can be used for different number of grab points on the knob.

Interesting wooden clamp build

Its a nice build, I like the cheap way he makes the coil for the spring on the handle. Me…well Harbor Freight sells these pretty cheap, and won’t take me 2 hours to make.

Nice handheld drum sander

Nice build for a drum sander that you can hold and move around. Bit more work than I would have done, but nice build just the same. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/homemade-curve-sander-video-76744?homelistings#post148072

Nice article of different jigs for the table saw

The half sheet crosscut sled is a nice build. The thinsheet jig is a bit fancier than I would make one.

Cool jig for pattern holes on a drill press

Nice idea. Me…I just use pegboard on the board to do the holes.

Making some simple tablesaw jigs

Nice builds overall, some are for better cuts (lining up the fence for example). Others are for some nice push sticks. I like the build for the side feather board (and thin strip maker).

crazy build for an automated hacksaw

This is a funny build to watch. The author went thru alot of work to make a power hacksaw. Me…The amount of work he put in he could have gone to Harbor Frieght and bought the cheap portable bandsaw. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/homemade-power-hacksaw-76474?homelistings#post147033
