I recently bought a miter saw made by Rigid. Although it wasn’t the cheapest one (or the most expensive), I think the quality of the build was worth it. I’ve been very happy with it, as in addition to being well built, it includes a laser to help you align where the blade will cut. The only problem is that with this tool and a mill on my workbench, I had no room to actually work on any projects. Fortunately, I had saved the pallet than my mill came on – a Grizzly model # G0619, as it just seemed too useful to throw away. After $4 worth of 2 x 4s and some nails, I had some extra space for my saw.

As discussed in this post, I recently made some custom mounting hardware for my phone. Although a wooden block seemed sufficient at the time, I’ve been trying out some stop-motion techniques and purchased a tripod. Making my ENV2 mount compatible was a simple matter of drilling and tapping the bottom of the wood for a 1/4 – 20 screw. Most tripods accept this screw and mine was no exception.
