THE PROBLEM: Going to an Xbox party, or wanting to game, watch movies, etc. requires that I pack up my Xbox, controller, games, monitor, etc. It's annoying to remember everything needed, as well as I didn't have a single, simple way to carry it all.
THE SOLUTION: The Xbox Box! A suitcase made from scratch that will house everything in one convenient box, protect it during travel, and open up like a laptop computer. It's a wooden box, with all items secured with strong Velcro. A single carry-strap makes it easy to carry. Another advantage is that nothing can be forgotten, as everything required to make the box function has a spot with the Velcro loops. Any empty loop means you've forgotten something.
I wanted to give my new Ryobi Impact driver a test run and it was perfect for driving in screws over and over. I learned a lot from the project and it always generates a few good-natured jokes.
