Changing your mind

Have you ever got half way through building something, and then decided that it would be better off as something else. Well, I was making one of my ply mini projects, it was going to be a stool. so I came up with design and made the sides. And it all looked great, and worked well... being sturdy, etc etc. The thing is when I laid a piece of ply on top of it it just looked more like an occasional table. Go figure. Never one to be too proud to change my mind, I decided to finish it as a table instead, and looking at the finished object, I"m glad I did. I guess this sort of thing can only really happen on quite experimental builds, where you are, in fact, building a prototype. Anyway, when I look at the table, I think to myself, how did I ever think it would look good as a stool. Let me know if you"ve ever had any similar experiences!
