I made a Super Mario (from Super Mario 3, my favorite NES Mario game) out of stained oak cubes. I basically stole this idea from pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/pin/28429041373312165/?from_navigate=true
My cousin came over one day so we could build an entertainment center for his soon-to-be game room! He had a rough idea of what he wanted, so we made a simple plan and got to cutting. All in all this project took about ~30$ worth of materials and only a couple hours to build.
I originally built workbenches to hold my Miter saw, however I noticed it was getting painfully annoying to have to move things off of my bench just to make a few cuts, or cover everything I was working on currently with saw dust because the saw would kick it up everywhere.
So, I built a really simple work bench on wheels to hold the saw. Again, just like the original workbenches, I liked it so much I built a second one to just be able to freely roll around my garage for ad hoc projects.
I had some left over pieces of poplar from a project Brandon was working on, so I decided to cut out some triangles. After some messing around, I didn't like the green hue so I cut new pieces out of pine, and got some pine strips for the border, and dark stained plywood for the backing.
I had some 2x4 slats laying around from other projects ripped with the table saw, so I decided to make a lamp using them.
I bought a torch from Lowe's and needed to burn something with it! I made a basic table using some split 2x4's I had lying around for an insanely rustic look.
A basic crate made from 1x12's for the sides, and the ends of 2x4's that were ripped using a table saw. All joints are done with 2" brad nails
I made a vanity based off some pallet bathroom vanity idea I found online
