Woodworking – Make an End Center Marking Jig


From The Author: An end center marking jig is a simple and very useful jig to have in the shop. It is used to locate and mark the center at one or both ends of your square or round stock. great for locating and marking the center of dowels, etc. This shop jig uses very little scrap wood and takes no time to build.

In the video I explain a little about 30-60-90 and 45-45-90 triangles as they are used in the shop along with how the 30-60-90 triangle is used in the jig as the marking guide. – Website

Building Plumbing C-Clamps


I recently got some nice pieces of plumbing for free and I didn’t know what to do with them. Until I found that they may be good clamps, and because I’m in a lack of clamps anyway, it was worth a try. they are no particularly strong clamps but also really not the weakest. They operate very smoothly because of the fine threads but of course they are not the fastest.
Tools required to make them: Hacksaw, powerdrill, wood (jig)saw, file, rasp, hammer, chisel.

When done attach the top of the garden lamp to the jar and you now have glowing spirit light which will be charged by the power of the sun.
