    Modular Honeycomb Shelves

    This is pretty clever. I like it most do to the fact most of the items needed are probably in your house, garage, or work shed already. So, that means free or very close to it. the special paint might be something folks would need to purchase. You have something here that can go so much further than a "shelf". What I mean by that is...Think of all the different storage designs you could do with this. even doing the same design as this as it was made as shelving, place it in a drawer and wow, look at all the compartments you would have to organize all kinds of things...A craft room...If you have a dresser in your craft room, this is perfect to organize all the little items that come with making crafts.

Same for a sewing room. A child's playroom, a girls room (jewelry, makeup, hair stuff, etc... A classroom...crayons, stickers, paper clips, pens, pencils, list is endless. There are plenty of DIY organizing techniques but this one here could be a true winner for people. free (especially for teachers as they already have these items) and cheap for others...would not necessarily need to use "special" paint either because all you'd need to do is use construction paper (all different colors) in place of the white special cardboard used in your design. I mean it's just going in a drawer but yet, can still make it look nice with colorful construction type paper and not even need to paint it. the possibilities of this project are endless...and consider making your own videos on YouTube and having a channel showing people how to make not just this but all different designs and what different ways this very technique could be used. Shelving, organization for drawers, closets, cupboards, even in cars maybe (small grocery shop, bags flair all around and the items all fall out, doing something like this on a larger scale might prevent that) in addition, folks on lots of medicines could organize them, if you figure out a way to make this a little stronger (maybe doubling the cardboard) this would be great to hang on a closet door for kids shoes...possibilities with your design are absolutely endless. I can't say enough how much of a great job you did here for people with very little money. again, make a YouTube channel...get this design and technique out there for the world to see how it's made..visually ???????????

    Homemade Skee Ball Game

    Actually, I meant "Slat Wall". The boards folks hang in their garage and you put shelves on them. Has large grooves, white in color. Wall board wasn't at all the proper terminology - lol...As for a return, I'm thinking similar to how a billiards table works but doing it DIY style, I bet using PVC pipe would do it. When the ball goes into ANY hole, it would fall into a funnel shaped contraption and from there fall into an elbow piece of PVC and from there a long PVC pipe that comes back on a slant to where the player stands. Cut the end by the player so it's a half pipe shape (only the size of the amount of balls used) Then put a "top" on the end of the pipe - even if it's the half pipe end, it will still go on just might have to use cement glue or or a hot glue gu...see more »Actually, I meant "Slat Wall".

I believe that would be a way to have it work for pretty cheap. Thoughts?
