Nice build for a wooden shield

Cool build for haunted window frame silohuettes

Interesting hack to get a cheap laser CNC to work with LaserWeb

Nice build for a flip top tool cart

I have seen some of these before.  But the author re-uses the frame of a small desk with casters for this one.  Me…I can see making something like this.  If the base is rugged enough. http://www.instructables.com/id/Flip-Top-Tool-Cart-From-Reclaimed-Desk/

Interesting build of taking a sawzall blade and making a knife out of it.

Interesting build overall, I like the paracord handle too.  Not so sure I would do this over just buying a knife. http://www.instructables.com/id/Knife-Out-of-a-Sawzall-Blade-no-HT/

Add in LED eyes to a picture

Interesting build for Halloween.  LED seems a little too bright for my taste, but maybe its just the picture. http://www.instructables.com/id/Spooky-LED-Halloween-Sign/
