Interesting birdhouse build

Could be a nice way to make one and eliminate some of the wood needed for the floor. Actually I think I would paint the can myself, and stain or paint the wood. But its a nice build overall.

Simple automatic soap dispenser

Using an arduino, IR sensor, and a servo, the author built a pretty simple conversion for a pump action soap dispenser. Could be a simple project to do with kids.

Nice home built dust collector system

Pretty amazing build. Most builds involve using a shop vac in it, this one, the author re-purposes a blower motor.

Make your own rav Marshmellow head

Nice build, the bucket used is a good idea. LED’s are a bit pricy for the project (individual addressed LED’s are not cheap).

Nice 3D printed stand for an electronic mircoscope

The author made this build for a scope based webcam that he could hold a circuit board down on and solder components too. Me…yeah I don’t go that small in boards (and usually use thru hole). But I could see repurposing this for other builds.

nice multi angle table saw jig

This can be used not just for angled cuts, but to “straighten” out boards that have a curve to them. Relatively simple build too.

Nice portable water sprayer

Good way to wash off dogs or yourself. It uses a weed sprayer bottle, and a shower head extension. The one bit I got that was interesting is the incoming tube in the sprayer may have restrictors in them that need to be removed (so you get a good flow of water). Oh and I get a kick out of the author trying to put the barbed end of the adapter onto the hose (I would have heated up the tube to get it over).

Nice build for a roller stand

Very nice build. A bit more work than I would do thought.
