    Lol. Useless maybe... but absolutely brilliant m8, I on the other hand can make anything useful, to within microns, but I cannot make anything like this... i've tried my hand many times... just for giggles... lucky for me my family loves me, and knows how to let me down easy...

    Im a little opposite from that. I usually just start to make something usefull, but somepoint i figure that "this is allmost like..." then i change my mind. 😊

    I started this one to be a simple cable holder..

    But somehow it came out in this shape..

    Luckily my wife understands me, even when i start to make firewoods and end to be making spoons, or something totally opposite what i supposed to do. 😊

    I wouldn't say it was useless. If you tacked it to a Harley gas tank it might get you a job at OCC choppers. Beautiful work.
