Simple miter box build

For your circular saw.

Another cool stool assembly

Seeing more and more of these lately. This is another simple stool assembly made from plywood and does not need nails. I may have to upgrade my CNC so I can cut a few of these out myself. https://www.instructables.com/id/Moth-Stool/
