New uses for common things

Wire wrapping using an oblong object

As much as I like circles,

Not only due to symmetry, but they are so easy to make

I wanted to try another shape. Instead of buying something, I like to try and find something that I already have and use it, and VOILA! I found this shape.

You know I love my camera apps, amirite?

It’s an old skin balm for pets that I haven’t used in awhile. An old deodorant container would do the same thing.

I wrapped my copper wire around it, and now I have new, oblong shapes to solder and hammer and form into new fabulousness.

So, how about you? Have you discovered a new use for a common thing?
