Jeremy Fielding has been recycling his own plastic, melting it down and re-forming it to use as raw material. Now he wants to build his own shredder to make the process easier. Here he’s starting with Dave Hakkens’ DIY shredder design, and seeing if he can make it without needing to weld, and at a very low cost:

Making 70 Hammers! Part 1

Here blacksmith Alec Steele uses a forge and a power hammer to turn billets into mallet heads:

How to Hack Your Car Stereo to Add Bluetooth, Create Mobile Tool Stands, Cast Concrete Using Balloons & More

Bluetooth Receiver for the Car

This is so cool! Laura Kampf’s car isn’t equipped with Bluetooth nor an auxiliary jack, so she’s got no way to connect her phone for playing music. Nor did she want to buy a new stereo, so here she rectifies with some DIY:

Tool Stands

Matthias Wandel creates mobile tool bases using dimensional lumber and some beefy self-made floating tenons. Watch for his no-rabbeting-bit rabbeting trick, and see how he integrates some dumpster-dived threaded-rod casters by creating and tapping his own flanges for them:

How to Make Wooden Sunglasses

Bob Clagett laminates a few layers of veneer to create his own pair of sunglasses that pre-ordered lenses can be snapped into. As always, we appreciate that he points out areas where you can do a better job to avoid some minor missteps:

Using a Festool Planex

One tool I’ve always been curious about, but have absolutely no justification nor budget to buy, is Festool’s Planex. This large-surface drywall sander is meant to produce virutally no dust when hooked up to an extractor. Here Sandra Powell gives it a whirl:

Concrete LED Light Made with Walnut & Balloon Forms

Linn from Darbin Orvar creates a lamp using an unusual process–casting concrete on a balloon:

Chisel Sharpening Jig

To sharpen handplane irons or chisels, you can learn to do it freehand, or you can buy a jig. Here John Heisz shows you a third option: A sort of blad-sharpening sled of his own design.
