Just re-covered my work chair with a piece of toile I got at a garage sale yesterday.
The $1 remnant.
This one takes the top prize for the weirdest thing Ive ever made.
I disassembled an old pair of binoculars to see what was inside, then put some of the parts back together to make a pencil holder.
Here are the lenses and prisms from the binoculars. Arent they cool?

See if you can tell which is pretty and which is weird.
