Another nice table saw sled

I like the ability to cut angles with this build. Bit more work than I would have planned on making one.

Bending PVC pipe

This time the author heats up play sand (up to 400 degrees) and pours it into the pipe to then bend it. Then let it cool.

Nice bandsaw featherboard

Nice build overall, bit more work than I would take on. Maybe I could do the 3D printed version? https://www.instructables.com/id/Bandsaw-Featherboard-and-Point-Fence/

Nice CNC build

This is the author’s second version. The frame is 3D printed out and the build can do plotter, drill, and laser based work. Looks sharp too. https://www.instructables.com/id/TRIPLE-CNC-MACHINE-UPGRADE/

Make a snowglobe, with LEDs

OK the authors take a different approach to the mason jar snow globe by adding in LED and a 3D printed base to the mix. Looks pretty nice. https://www.instructables.com/id/LED-Mason-Jar-Snow-Globe/

Interesting jig for table legs on a tablesaw

The build allows for the leg to be tapered, and then spun to round it out. Interesting take if you do not have a lathe. I can see making a baseball bat this way too.

Interesting dust collector build, good for mini CNC’s

Nice build, the author 3D printed as simple dust cyclone for a mini CNC. This could be built up more by adding a bigger waste container. I like the use of PC fan too (quieter than most vaccums). https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3961313
