Playing off an idea we highlighted a couple weeks back that involved using a CD and suction cup as a dirty dish indicator, DIYer Sean Ragan put together this simple printable status dial project.
The project is pretty self explanatory — print out Sean's template and apply it to the CD, pop a suction cup into the centre of the CD and affix the pointer, and you're done. Clever and simple, just how we like it. Check the full how-to over on Make for more detailed steps, the printable template and plenty of pictures.
