Making your own tools is one of the best ways to start outfitting your shop without spending a lot. The downside is that it takes more time and you may not have a tool necessary to build the tool you want. Check out this homemade drum sander from Molly & Dylan. They did a great job on it.

G’Day Folks! Shane always brings a positive energy a vibe to his videos. Great dude. Check out this clever fishing rod carrier and storage rack. I know a few of my good friends who would love one of these.

John Heisz – I Build It
This is great to see once again. Using a long straight board against the fence to extend the reference surface will allow you to get straight cuts on not so straight material. There is a limitation to how much you can cut though. I did this years ago in my very first shop with my delta table saw. I thought it helped for straight cuts but the piece of 2×2 steel tube I was using was too long and cumbersome to keep on there. I didn’t keep it on there long enough to really verify my thoughts with it. I’m glad to see someone explain the concept and verify that it was a good move back then, and still is today.

I love these joint videos. No cutting a joint as part of a project but rather cutting it to learn. Practice makes perfect. Practice also makes patience!

A LOT of work went into this table. I love the sourcing and use of copper. That took some thinking. And those rivets. 1110 of them to be exact. A table with drawers and a lid. An interesting design.

Matt takes his new log trailer on its maiden voyage. He shows not only getting the log home but how the arborist took it down. It’s always interesting to see the entire process. Matt continues that process at his place by milling the log into usable slabs.
