Used to put pegs into a board for a 90 degree mount. Clever build overall.

3D print (and design) an oreo dipper

I just got a kick out of this one. The author goes on how to design and print out your own dipper that you can put ontop of your glass of milk or bowl.

Nice corner clamp build

Nice build for picture frames or other items like it. Me, I bought some cheap clamps at Harbor Freight that do the job for me. But I would love to have a set as nice looking as these.

Convert your 2.5D CNC to a 5 axis

This is a nice build, the author took one of those cheap small Chinese CNC’s and 3D printed the parts needed to make a 5 axis out of it. Me, I like this build, one thing I would do differently is use smaller steppers for the other axis’s he added in, mostly to keep the profile low.

Simple bike stand from scraps

Nice build the author did from scraps of wood. My 2 cents, I wonder if he could have left a gap at the bottom where the wheel goes to give it a bit more space to hold the wheel.

A cheap kayak

With a lot of work, the author built it with $10 in materials, using a lot of stuff you find in nature to make the frame and other aspects of the kayak. Nice build but not so sure I would go this cheap, especially on something that could sink with you in it.

Nice stand for a bench grinder

Nice build that allows for different angles on the bench grinder. It beats the “cheap” table I have one mine that is constantly falling off.

Nice rug build, maybe good for cosplay armor

Nice looking build, now this would not work for real armor as you need some overlay on each piece, but it looks cool and could make a good costume based armor.

Make LED buttons

The author basically takes an LED from a strip, puts it into a 3D printed button holder, and wires it in. Nice build and if you have leftovers from a strip of LEDs too.
