Improved Spline Jig

I think I showed the original one a few months back. Well the author went back on the build and made a better version of it. It looks nice. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/%93no-clamps%94-spline-jig-w-folding-knobs-78449?homelistings#post154771

Mini router sled

The author uses a trimmer router and a small sled to plane down small pieces of wood. Good idea overall. However the vaccum hold down he uses is pretty expensive for the build. https://www.instructables.com/id/Scalable-Router-Sled-and-Thicknessing-Jig/

Bench Dog build

I like the build the author does, thought I would not go as far as he did in making it (I would just buy dowel at HD for example). Still I like the builds. https://www.homemadetools.net/forum/dead-simple-bench-dog-clamps-77706?homelistings#post151966
