Make your own door opener

Interesting build for opening doors with your feet. Me, you can get these pretty cheap so I would just buy it.

Simple drillpress tray

You know I should have thought of this one. Nice simple tray for your drillpress made out of what looks like a big piece of scrape. Now I am keeping an eye out for a thick board to use and make my own.

Cool looking necklace build

Nice build, the author posts the schematic so you could get your own board built… Or modify it yourself.

Simple portable sawhorses

Nice simple build, but…I think I would just get the 2 for $10 at harbor freight.

Cool looking wall art

Interesting build. One thing I might do differently is put an inner set of LED strips too.

Improved Spline Jig

I think I showed the original one a few months back. Well the author went back on the build and made a better version of it. It looks nice.

3D print a face mask

I have seen a couple of different versions of this one. Not so sure how comfortable this is, or how porious a 3D printed object could be….

3D print your own frame for a face visor

Nice write up on how to setup the Prusa face visor (uses a transparency). Unfortunately the table on my printer is a touch too small for this one.

Interesting Miter station

I like some aspects of this, but why have a block to make angles when the miter can do that itself? Either way an interesting build.
