This video shows the benefit of mounting a laser to your bandsaw to help account for and virtually eliminate drift. I’m not sure what I like more though, the laser guide or the miter gauge fence combo…. He said in the video description that the laser he is using is item #93242 at Harbor Freight.

Ever wonder what to do with those leftover wood curls lying on the ground after planing? This is a creative way to reuse those fire starters and score points with that special person in your life.

The Every Maker – Nick

This is a great Pirate’s Treasure Chest (Ring Box) build video on a small scale with big applications. Looking for some inspiration, there is plenty of it in this one. Excellent story telling and a really convenient way to oxidize brass. I love every aspect of this build.

There are a lot of different options out there for staining wood. If you have never considered using wood dye, Jeff Baker shows a practical application of the use of wood dye in this video with fantastic results. Two layers of color to give a lot more depth.

A nice well described project from Harry using various easy techniques to make this small Gypsy caravan. This would be a fun project to get the kids involved. Great work Harry.

Peter Brown

A little throwback from Peter Brown. Here Peter shows how to recycle an old milk jugs made of HDPE. No special woodworking techniques, just a way to reuse something that is already there and you don’t have to purchase expensive stock.

Great practical advise from James. He suggest making the tools you need for your first project out of any old scrap wood. This develops skills you will use later on in the actual project.

Yet another way to repurpose HDPE bottles. All of that cutting definitely paid off in the final look of the mallet. Very unique look and probably a conversation starter for anyone who sees it in the shop.

  1. Hey Jay, thanks for the share! I am glad you enjoyed the video! This was the first project I ever filmed, though not the first one I posted, it took me a while to get around to editing all the footage. I really appreciate the support!

  2. Jay, Thanks so much for sharing my video. I really appreciate it. I just got all the parts in for this build and will be getting it together this weekend. I cant wait to see it finished. Thanks again!
