Step 1: Overview
Objective: Create a wooden leg, because I currently don't have one but it would look good on a pirate. Amputation was out of the question because I needed it to heal and be usable in 2 days...so how was I going to make one?
Then I remembered a printing technique - lead letters were placed in the press, the ink was rolled onto them, and then the paper was rolled onto the ink. Eureka, I could do the same with fabric and make myself a wooden leg.
(Please note that this was originally written in Pirate, but I've translated it back into English so everyone can follow along.)
