Matches fit in a pocket in this holder. The matches are called cowboy matches and can strike on any rough surface. This is another easy project to make and just in time for the holidays.

How to drill holes in a glass bottle
This is the basic design for the bottle drilling jig but you would have to measure the length of your bottle and then fit the blocks accordingly.
See the video and see how easy it is to build.
Tool Caddy for the workbench. Great for the tools you use the most, and always at your fingertips.
I think it looks nice on the bench and is very easy to make. Someone suggested they were going to make a couple of them, I think that is a great idea. Different tool caddies for different jobs!
The base is made of 3 2x4s, and is 11" in length.
The ends are made with 3/4" oak. Height is 7 1/2".
This is what worked for me but they can be any length to suite your tools.
For shaping the ends I started with a 1 1/8" forstner bit, then cut the rest with the band saw.
Putting it all together....
I used screws for the 2x4s, you cannot see them because I screwed them from the bottom.
The sides are screwed on and deeply countersunk as you can see in the first photo.
Tool caddy end template
I traced out one of the ends on a 8"x11" sheet of paper then
An I-beam table is nice for the drill press, bench or any table. The bottom of the platform allows you to clamp it nicely while the top will be the work surface.
For the 2 holddowns I used a small piece of maple, cut them to shape with the bandsaw and drilled a small slot. The small hole will fit a t-nut and a 1/4 inch lag bolt.
A compass is a handy tool for any shop and this is a large one. A pencil can be attached to mark circles but I use it mostly for precise measuring. Here is the video and below are some plans on how to make the Compass. .
In this video shown below, 5 easy woodworking projects I made the Table clamp. I found it to be a very easy project to make and a very useful clamp to have in the shop. It would be a nice project for beginners.
Building the clamp is very simple, I used plywood for the base and a piece of maple for the top jaw. The base should be thick to keep the carriage bolt secure.
After the pieces are cut to size the top jaw is placed on the base and marked in the center. Then the two pieces are clamped together and a hole is drilled on each end for the carriage bolts.
Make sure you use a drill bit the same size a the bolt or slightly smaller, this way everything will keep square. Clamping and drilling together is important to get the holes exactly lined up.
Next ,the bottom needs a slight countersinking for the carriage bolt, then bang in the bolts with a hammer and it will be secure.
Finally, putting it together. Slide on the top jaw and put on the nobs and it is ready.

How to make a Mini Speed Square
This speed square is so easy to make and I get many good comments so I thought I would include it with some simple plans. I made some out of maple and mahogany. They can be made any size but I matched it to my small machinist square. This is a nice pocket tool for any woodworker.
To make the square you first must cut a perfect square then cut it in half giving you a triangle. I use my fine adjust saw sled to make the cuts. Other saws will work but the piece should be tested with a larger speed square. The small block and the triangle are just glued together with some titebond and set aside.
I use mine all the time for some smaller work. You can always make a couple for the shop and one more thing, it fits nicely in your pocket.
