As the picture shown below,three cds are needed here,two as the base and back ,and two slices as strengthening ribs.

Use a bow saw to cut all the cds with proper size and two grooves on the base cd for mount ribs.

Step 2: Assembling

Don't you get melted plastic stuck to your soldering iron?
I think I would go with an epoxy instead.

Yaeh, glue is a better solution, that's the awesomeness of instructables, thing improves.
That's why you would either use a different tip from normal or use a different soldering iron.
Oh a great use for duds.
Will have to try. :)

Great Idea! "Soldering" Them Is A More Permanent Way To do It But Used A Soldering Iron On Anything Other Than The Solder Can Ruin It, Otherwise A Great Idea!
Just make sure the tips are replaceable. :P
