Getting rid of the Crack

04 Feb 2006

The job of an engineer is to solve problems. Here is a problem.

Problem: The crack between the desk and the wall is annoying. I keep dropping coins and pens into the crack. How do I get rid of the crack?


Prepare some empty cans, and put some tissue into the can to keep the inside dry.

break the handle and place the cans in appropriate place to cover the crack. However, the cans looks weird on my desk. I want to make them look different.

Let's cover the cans with legal size white papers. And I put the word "CAN" on the cans, in English, Japanese katakana, Japense kanji, and Chinese.
