Wow that's awesome! I can relate - haven't done those but I've impressed myself with some things I've done on my car.
When it comes to critical things associated with the engine I shy away from them. The guy I use to work with is a car mechanic. He said go for it as I would have no problem. He was right.
I just found a new supply of forks!

Made a 3x5 meter sukkah (and 3 meters tall), from 15 pallets, a few hundred nails and a hammer. Had one 5 and 3 meter stone wall 1.5 meter tall, and one 5 meter a full stone wall to work off of but could not make any holes in it. Stayed up for the entire yom tov (I was surprised).
I'm not who you think I am.

I could write a lot of stuff that would impress a lot of people here, but it doesn't impress me so it doesn't qualify for this thread.

How about finding the cheapest item available for sale at IKEA?

Next to IKEA of Brooklyn is a water taxi which is free on weekends. A couple of years ago we wanted to take our kids for a ride on that ferry, but due to high demand one had to present a receipt for something bought at IKEA. So that was another activity to do with the kids, find the cheapest item available at IKEA.

Though going through IKEA without buying anything doesn't sound like an amazing feat. Once you reach the checkout lines, letting go of anything you picked up seems very easy.

Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Actually bought a dozen of these during my last visit.

Though back when I actually needed a purchase for the water taxi, it was this that we managed to find.

Those are actually really pretty and great to have for guests!

Indeed, which is why I bought a dozen, and they came to use the first Shabbos after I bought them! (though 2 or 3 dozen would have been better for that Shabbos)

Talking of which (and this might warrant a separate thread, but I'm too lazy to start one), what do people use to light Shabbos candles. I hate the odor of burnt matches, and really don't like to have a bad odor welcoming Shabbos. What do people find most useful? Gas lighters? Thin wax lighters? We're talking about lighting more than a dozen candles.

and didn't realize there are 2 different links. I was very confused trying to figure out why you guys were getting dog bowls for all your guests.

Tried using that for Negel Vasser, but didn't really work well, so we just threw it to the dogs.  ;D

+1! Had to double check to see if it was ExGingi or Mesh posting.
