Years ago, I bought a novelty gooseneck lamp for Joshua’s bedroom. It had four shades in primary colors (red, green, yellow, and blue if I recall correctly). It was fun, but the shades grew brittle with age and heat exposure and eventually broke. We redecorated Joshua’s room, and prepared to send the lamp for repurposing or recycling.
I have always wanted a little wallet that was nothing more than a card case and a money clip. Inspired by some designs online, I created and printed one with my 3D printer. The cool thing is that I can keep fiddling with the design to keep it as minimal but functional as possible. I have uploaded the design to Thingiverse.
I ordered some wire mesh shelves for my kitchen, “Seville Classics 2-Tier Iron Mesh Adjustable Floating Wall Shelves, 36″ x 14″, Satin Pewter.” They looked cool.
Unfortunately, their manufacturing tolerances were way off. The shelves tilted downward into the room. A lot. The front edge of the shelf was about 2cm (almost an inch) lower than the back. Stuff on the shelves would work their way to the edge and then fall off.
