So I bought spoon rest from the thrift store for $1. My wife looked at me with a puzzled look.
"What are you going to do with that?"
"I'm going to use it to make stuff bigger."
"Okay." Bless her, the poor dear is used to my crazy ideas, so nothing surprises her anymore...
An epoxy poured magnifying glass. I take a thrift store spoon rest and turn into something useful and interesting for you desk. If you have a couple hours to spare, you can do the same!
