I will see what I can tie with a certain material.  If I come back with a fine looking bird after a day of hunting, I will almost always wonder what I can tie with the new materials.  Just like if a friend gives me a nice looking walnut board, say it would plane down to a 1/2 inch thickness I will wonder what kind of project I can make out of this board.  Weather it be a nice music box, or trim for a hope chest.  Or even see some good prices on lumber, stuff I could use for about anything I'll ponder what I can make with these 2x6's.  Perhaps I can build those deck steps I've been meaning to do.
