From the submitter:

Bagger broke? There, I fixed it. This leaf scoop solves the problem with leaves piling up in front of the mower deck and pushes the bulk to the curb. Though it will shove your leaves to the curb, you don't want to use this on a busy road because you will certainly get a few strange looks.

From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

Instructables user hanlin_y did the math and realized that alkaline batteries are one of the most expensive forms of power that consumers can use. So he/she/it came up with a solution to power your parts even if they don't come with an AC adapter. With a wall plug, wires, and bamboo strips you can run your electronics off the grid; saving money and the environment at the same time.

From BPerry2:

I was able to build this lamp for under $20 (US) The books cost $6, The Switch and fixture cost $7.50, and a few misc. items that was another $4.

Another successful book lamp from a dedicated user! That particular light bulb looks brilliant, a great addition to the build. If you missed the first one, here's what user Richard C made last week. Well done guys, let's keep them coming!
