A solar charger I made in high school, I made it modular so that I can add some extra solar panels to the system or add a battery between the controller and the 12-volt output.  The tube shaped piece is where the solar controller is contained, I made it on a lathe, I am in the process of waterproofing it.  It can charge a phone just as fast as a wall outlet when in full sun.

One of the projects I made in freshman year of high school is this lamp.  I sandblasted and cut the glass in our glass shop, made and programmed the circuit board in our electronics lab, made the container in our woodshop, and cut and welded the metal stand in our metal shop.  

It actually works with Lego’s, so I can modify it however I want.  I also made it in Sketchup to modify and check the design.

A clock I made in high school.   I wanted to make a reclaimed clock, so I got all of the parts other than the actual clock mechanism from asking local hardware stores and bike shops if I could go through their recycling.  The wooden board with the circle in it was a piece left over from some one else’s laser cutting project.
