I try to recycle when ever possible, to avoid having to buy something. To me there is something elegant and satisfying in that.
Generally what happens is that each project takes 2-3 times as long as what I thought it would.
Of course, I like to keep up with what others are doing. My favorite blog is Make:. And of course I get some inspiration from Mythbusters.
Some of the projects currently on my list:
- Live squirrel trap
- Holiday cake contest entry
- Tanned deer-skin display
