How lengthy is your project list? Hmmm? Mine is actually quite extensive, and includes:

A LARGE collection of Krytons of all different colors (anodizing) and marble and fade designs, in a large pelican case with slots removed and holes drilled in the foam for spare batteries. As well as 2 VERY special ones, a polished Kryton Smooth that will eventually (fingers crossed) hold one of the new 510 diodes, and a Groove 1st gen with whatever new color breakthrough comes after that (really want SOMETHING between green and red, like the 560-610 range.) Also, 4 of these will be the "Masters" A blue, red, green, and violet "master"

A green and black marble with Fiddy's green GITD strips and O-rings, and a 500mW module harvested from an O-like laser.
A blue and black marble with a high WL H1600 (450+) and more of Fiddy's GITD
A red and black marble with a 635 binned for efficiency, with more GITD
A purple to blue fade with black marble with a binned 12X (hoping for a WL bin) and more GITD

A handful of labbies. 2 magentas, one with a 405/660 combo, another with single mode 450/635. A cyan labby, a yellow one (even though I don't feel to excited about a yellow mix) and an RGB unit.

Some knife edging once I get enough spare time and money to do this project.

A few PBS labbies. So ~1.25W of 405, 1W of 660, 1.8-2W of 635, etc.

A homemade DPSS system

More gas!

And I'm sure there's more that I've said "Oh! I wanna do that!" to, but they're slipping my mind at the moment.

SO! What plans do ya'll have? How extensive is your to-do list? I'm interested in ya'll's answers!

Eh, I try not to keep track of mine >.> but...

1) DIY X-ray (30kV supply from Le Quack)
2) Adapting a Plasma Speaker from Le Quack to function as the receiving speaker for my Laser Communicators.
3) ZVS Flyback Jacob's Ladder (driver from Le Quack)
4) 1.75W 445nm Build in either a Phobos, MagicStick, or SS SL Host.
5) DIY Laser perimeter sensor adapted for a Driveway Chime. I have the plans for this up in the old grey matter, but finding suitable waterproof housing and cabling as well as the mounts for both the laser and the receiver are still foggy. The circuit isn't hard at all though. Oh, and in case you're wondering... 5mW 808nm is the intended laser.
6) Replacing the loaner HF rig in my hamshack with one of my very own. Very expensive venture that isn't likely to happen for a long time.
7) Build a better audio amplifier and speakers than my current computer speakers.

1-3 are awaiting shipment of parts/boards from Le Quack. 4+ are awaiting funds.

That's freaking awesome sinner!

Btw I just added another project to my list and bumped it up to top priority: remaking my old NST CW Multiplier. All parts ordered, should get ~75kV 3mA. Thinking about using it for an ionizer XD.

I really like the DIY X-Ray idea, if you wouldn't mind, please post a build here on the forums once it gets underway, I'd love to read it and give it a shot on my own :) As for the Magic Sticks, I can't wait to get one of those suckers, hopeful that you'll make more in the future as I'm tapped out for the next month (women....*sigh*)

Good ideas guys, my list was in no particular order really, the Kryton will be an ongoing thing, the other labbies probably will overlaps (I tend to work on multiple projects at once, takes longer though.)

Also, +1 for the tip Arg :beer:
