Something just a bit different, a collaboration with another YouTube channel where I make a trophy that they use in one of their Let's Play videos.

This video shows in detail how to make a custom division plate for the ultimate box joint jig and the advanced box joint jig. This is also a very good way to deal with metric size blades, such as 3mm kerf blades.
In this example I used wood, but you can also use hard plastic or even solid aluminum. The benefit of those materials is that you can cut the plate with a finer spacing, like 1/8" (rather than the 1/4" shown in the video).

Plans for this jig are available here:

This one's a bit different as I go through how I roughly design a project with SketchUp before building it.

Last detail to take care of on the new miter saw station is the stop system for the side wings.
 
Build article that includes all of the other videos in this series:
http://www.ibuildit.ca/Workshop%20Projects/workshop-furniture-projects/miter-saw-station-1.html

Later, I added another pointer to the left side of the tee to use the stop on the right side wing as well. I may add a scale to the telescoping stick to make that read from the main scale on wings, but strictly speaking I don't think it's needed.

The original build article for this clamp design:
http://www.ibuildit.ca/Workshop%20Projects/c-clamp-1.html

This one uses thicker parts for the frame, plus a larger diameter lead screw and backbone.
I did a strength test on this clamp and you can watch that video here:
