Nice drill press table build

Nice build, I like how it has built in grooves to hold the clamps down. Me…I bought a cheap table at Harbor Freight for $30. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Drill-Press-Table-and-Fence/

Simple table saw cross cut sled

I am a little mixed on these half sized cross cut sleds, they take up alot less space and easier to cart around, but you loose the contact point on the bit you are cutting off. https://www.woodsmithplans.com/plan/table-saw-crosscut-sled/

Nice jig to make dattos and pocket squares

I like this build. Simple and easy to use. One thing I was thinking about for the square cut, maybe extending the arm so it can get support from both sides of the datto frame. http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/ultimate-router-dado-template-jig-%7C-amazing-2-1-router-jig-%7C-unique-idea-74286?homelistings#post138721

The lathe from scrapes
