(Object Design)
I am a big fan of McMaster Carr, an on-line industrial parts and supply company with well over 500,000 products and consistent next-day delivery.

To keep my sanity during the Covid-19 outbreak, I tasked myself with creating a weekly object with parts from their catalog and a $30 limit.

After 11 weeks, I decided to call it quits (for now).
