i want something big, like a world record
or a big project


Here's what you do:

1 Get yourself a few pieces of plywood and at least 20,000 nails.

2 Cut each piece of plywood in half the long way.  Place all pieces end-to-end forming one long strip.

3 Drive10,000 nails in a neat, evenly spaced row along one edge of the plywood strip.

4 Select or compose a piece of music with 10,000 or more notes in succession.

5 Stretch a rubber band until it plays a note when strummed; measure it's length. 

6 Drive a nail that distance from the first nail on your plywood strip.  

7 Stretch the rubber band onto the two nails.

8 Repeat steps 5-7 for each note and each rubber band until you've made a row of 10,000 stretched rubber bands.

9 Pluck each rubber band in succession, you've just played a 10,000 note song.

Rubber band room. 1. Hammer nails at different points in a room. 2. Chainlink your rubber bands. 3. Simply stretch them across the room and wrap them around the nails so they will stay on. 4. Yay!!!
