I get inspired every time I watch a meticulously handmade project that is not only interesting to look at but also meets functionality requirements. Check out this children’s stool from Esophagus and the attention to detail in order to make it from a single board with only hand tools. The little man’s haircut is great too.

I’m not leaving out the wood turners out there. There are center finders you can buy to help make sure you get your piece balanced perfectly between centers, and for square stock, it is fairly simple to find the center by drawing lines from corner to corner. If you find yourself with cylindrical stock without the center marked and need to find it quickly, this small jig can be a real time saver.
