For what it's worth, I think the coolest KITH ever was the one where you had to make a functional/beautiful blade with nothing but stuff you could buy at a local, generic hardware store. I think the best challenges come with somewhat arbitrary constraints.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Looks like the 1 cubic inch of starting stock it is!  I'm looking forward to getting started.  As a somewhat arbitrary deadline, I'll throw out October 1st.  That should give enough time to actually be done by the end of the year.:D

2x2x1/4, 1x3/8x2-5/8, 2x1x1/2 anything that makes 1 cubic inch of volume.

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.
