    Lots of options - it gets dangerous haha. Always something else to make.

    Nice work! It really is addictive.

    Try a few squaring off the bottom. Those always look nice too and is only one more step really to what you already have.

    Great job!
    There are very few problems we can solve ourselves, but there is almost nothing we cannot solve together.

    Most often when someone says they can't, they are unwilling to try.
