Stuff and Things is a mod that is inspired by the youtuber, sl1pg8r. This mod contains various things that you wish you had vanilla but you don't. This mod contains many things revolving around the usage of experience. The whole mod works on the magic table and the HED, a block which uses experience to turn items into other items such as the magical stick. With those items, you can make other items that are very useful.
