Wood trellis, my first try
I had fast-growing hyacinth bean vines and not much time left to dither. So I grabbed some cheap 2x1s and 3x1s from Home Depot (I think they were around $1 each) and some left over screws and set to work.
I painted it and set it in place, and only just in time. 3 weeks later it was engulfed, and I didn't see it again until October frosts.
It doesn't look bad from a distance, but next time I'll either use thinner wood or apply a little more ingenuity to fitting them together so that the pieces don't have to stack. I think the central squares would look better if they were all on a single plane.

I had a drawer full of random calico scraps and a need for a roomy bag, so I set myself a challenge: make a duffel bag without buying a single thing new

Clearly, it was too big, and too close to the garage and adjacent path. But how to get it out with the least amount of fuss and expense?
