that's what my mother always says about projects that keep you busy. I've undertaken a little carpentry escapade (maybe a fiasco, but not yet): to build a three-tiered plants stand.
After about a million hours of poorly drawn sketches, I put together a draft scenario by stacking up CD cases, then semi-poorly drew some more sketches, then made a 3-D paper model, then not-poorly-at-all drew some more sketches, with measurements, then went to the store, then toiled for a while. Although there's not much to see yet, the project is coming along.
Whether or not I post a picture would be, I suppose, connected with how well all this works out. :)
