MAKE Asks: Finished Projects

MAKE Asks: is a weekly column where we ask you, our readers, for responses to maker-related questions. We hope the column sparks interesting conversation and is a way for us to get to know more about each other.

This week’s question: What do you do with a project once it’s completed?

When I finish a project I like to put together a blog post documenting the build and the final product. This isn’t just an act of self-fulfillment — once it’s up on the internet I hope it can help and/or inspire others with their own projects. I also like to keep an eye out for public venues to show my work. At the very least I show it to friends to get feedback.

Post your responses in the comments section.
