A while back I decided to see how my coffee maker worked. I busted it open and by the time I figured things out, I couldn't put it back together (broken). So I decided I didn't want to buy a new coffee maker and I built this stand for the machine innards. The reservoir was built into the old machine, so I had to add the bottle to hold the water as it heats up. It works great!

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.
