Custom shim wall feature
You know what a shim is, right? It's a small, flat, very basic tool. I use them often to take things like laptops and iPods apart, but as this next project shows us, they can also be used as art.
The idea is to take a bunch of wooden shims, stain them with a variety of complimentary shades, mix 'em up, and put them on the wall behind a home entertainment center to take the focus away from that fancy new HDTV, which might be a good thing.
It should take more than a weekend, but it looks great, so it's likely worth it.
