Picture hanging tool

Why didn’t I think of this, you have a threaded rod on a stick that you can use to make the mark on the wall where to put the hanger for the picture frame.

DIY cement weights

Since most cheap weights are cement with a plastic cover, this makes sense to make your own for some of the heavier sizes. Interesting build overall.

Interesting Hydroponics build

Well the air gizmo isn’t cheap, but the rest of the materials are normal stuff.

Making a PVC chain

Interesting build. The author 3D printed a template for cutting the rings from a pvc pipe. Each link does have a cut in them to attach them together, and then melts them back together.

Me…this is cheap way to do it, but….I think I would just buy some cheap real chain at harbor freight.

Interesting drum sander build

This is good for small pieces of wood. I would not try this with a long or large piece. Also pretty complicated build overall. Oh I like how the author built the roller with ends loose to put the sandpaper in.

Its interesting to watch this guy on youtube. He is a chef but builds of rather interesting gizmos.

Making your own metal lathe on the cheap

Interesting build. Not so sure I would go this far for a lathe, and maybe just go someplace instead.

Make a softbox light

Interesting build. Not so sure I would use cardboard for the sides as if it gets wet…well its all over. But still an interesting and cheap build.
