Interesting Stuff From Around The Web #113 – January 9, 2016

Every week I like to share a few things I find interesting. Mostly video content with an occasional website article. All of the content you will find in these posts is free to you. Remember that liking, subscribing, or sharing free content goes a long way in helping produce more free content. If you like that creator’s work, share it! Also, thank you to those who send me links through the week when you find something really interesting.

Here’s a pretty nifty flip top cart made from a sheet of plywood and a few parts. Free plans available too! (click the image)

Shop built

This dude is full of good ideas. Here’s an inexpensive build for a nice pocket hole jig.

Ron Paulk

An old video from Ron but a good one none the less. An easy jig to make that cuts perfect shims every time from junk scraps.

Graham Haydon

This is a good review of what seems to be a good value plane but I’m including it here because he also demonstrates how an old metal plane and a homemade wood plan are also capable of doing the exact same thing.

Carl Jacobson

Wowza! I’m at a loss for words here. An X-Wing like you’ve never seen it before!

Justin Fiaschetti

Holy moly BATman!


Great instructional video showing a very useful jig. This can be adapted to a lot of dovetail applications.

Marc Adams

Here’s another great instructor in the woodworking world, Marc Adams. He’s showing a fool proof way of cutting a mortise and tenon joint. This is three part, very good instructional series starting with laying out the joint.

Here’s cutting the mortise.

And cutting the tenon.


  1. I wish you would find more good plans for out door projects. I have searched the web and find too many that say free, if you pay? If you get the free plans you only get the instructions in part no cut list or other missing information.
    I’m limited to what I can buy as I’m on SS and can only spend a small amount on tools and project material. Thanks for a great job so far.

  2. Hi Jay, Happy New Year to you. As always you have posted an interesting selection of items from around the web.
    I have to say the videos on the mortise & tenon is a different approach, that I haven’t seen before. It certainly gives a tidy result and demonstrates there is more than one way to do any operation. But i would suggest anyone looking to learn how mortise & tenons are cut by hand to take a look at Paul Seller’s method as well. Pete
