I've been doing the D.F. Shuffle for around 2 decades now, but the usage and reasons have changed over those 7300+ days (Actually counted in minutes (or hours if I'm lucky) these days). Loved playing 3.5 and most of the prior iterations of D&D since the late 1970's, but since a medical problem I now use it to pass the time and take my mind off of pain.
This one thread Coloseum From 2003 shows a lot of things I used/made/set up with Dwarven Forge products and inspiration. In the thread you will find Custom Clay Sculpts, Modified Dwarvenite, Grid Paper Maps, Easy Water and a cool GIF that Josh made for me.
Anyway, there is a lot to do with DF, even Holiday Decorations.
Keep on Forge'N
