Nice stool build. Simple to put together (if you can find a CNC to cut it out on). https://www.instructables.com/id/Twist-Stool/

Cool CNC project ot make a stool

Its hard to tell, but I think the author makes 3 stools from 1 sheet of plywood with this design. Neat build overall. The write-up could use a little more detail thought https://cdn.instructables.com/F1T/0SIO/JSL37WIU/F1T0SIOJSL37WIU.LARGE.jpg?auto=webp

The poor persons CNC

Or a “ghetto CNC”. Pretty straight forward build with simple materials. Fun to watch (amazed how well it works). I love the nut build he uses for anti backlash nuts. https://www.instructables.com/id/CNC-ROUTER-HOME-MADE/

Another mini lathe build

I seem to be on a lathe kick lately. Anyways this is a nice build if you have a decent 3D printer to print the parts. Me…not so sure I want an ABS based fram for a wood turner. https://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-Lathe-Machine-for-Woodworking/

Bump stops for your CNC

The free plans are fore an X-Carve, but could be adapted to any CNC. My 2 cents, I was looking at this build and it would be pretty easy to build by hand as well with scrap wood.

Making a Lemon Battery

This would be a fun project with kids. Teach how to pile batteries together to get a higher voltage for example.

Nice write up on tricks and tips for setting up a 3D printer

In this case its for the chinese Ender printer. But can apply to alot of other 3D Printers out there as well. https://www.instructables.com/id/Ender-3-Pro-Initial-Setup-and-Recommended-Prints/

Interesting combo of 3D printing, silicon molds, and rubber to make a wheel

Nice build, author 3D prints the cast for making the mold, then prints out the rim to put into the case, and then adds in the rubber to bond with the wheel.
