A lot of wisdom here.
I've made several mistakes during a specific project construction I look at for some solution and if I canīt find it I put the piece onto the grill for the next barbecue. I rarely buy charcoal for barbecue.

Electricians don't wear rings on the job either for some reason,or should I say same reason.

Default Proportionality

When I first started wood working I want to make a chessboard out of red oak and walnut. However, I thought if a regular sized board was good a gigantic chessboard would be better. Also, I saw a little knick knack stand that had three shelves and it was made of oak with straight 1 inch square oak legs. I thought it looked great and if it look great then I could copy it and make it better by making it twice the size.

In both cases, as you probably already know, I was wrong as you can not just scale up by doubling the dimensions. Well, you can do it but it ain't gonna look too great!
