For our upcoming wedding we're doing alot of the work on our own. Included in this venture are various items of our own design/construction like DIY tiki torches with split bamboo as the pole with a hidden grolsh style beer bottle holding the lantern fuel, hundreds of hard drive platters as mirrored surfaces under centerpieces, LED throwies*
, and wine bottles turned drinking glasses
that our guests can take home.
Anyway, the DIY spree we've been on has heightened my desire to catalog and/or research other cool projects that people seemingly pull out of nowhere and end up with a functional
result. This is not about making car bumper chickens
which, while nice, hold little or no interest for me.
What are some other projects in this vein
that you've seen or done and been impressed by the results/potential?
