Another place to visit in that perspective is the photographic challenge/competition I join every month since 2007. Every month the Challenge Webmaster selects a topic and we have to fill it out as we see fit. It is just for the fun of it, no price is distributed at the end. I prefer, but not always, to go for a somewhat different result than most of what the others produce. Curious? Visit: BD-Challenge

I designed and constructed my garden to be like this:

I needed a stair to the attic but the stairmakers were reluctant to do it because of the complexity.

I did it myself and it is still holding after 15 years.

A new side table that could display my chess piece.

As we do have from time to time small children in the house I had to make sure they couldn’t hurt themselves, hence the somewhat curved corners.

 

A living room light I created as we couldn't find anything to our liking in the shops.

A practical HiFi / TV stand that could hold the necessary equipment and that could hide the sub-woofer as well.
