Back in geometry class we used to draw these on paper. I could never remember what they were actually called, but I think they went by "string art". (That’s what came up in a search too)
Basically the Idea is making a curve with straight lines. Usually it's done on paper or 'stitched' onto cardboard. The plan for this one was to make a 3D version that I could hang on the wall or display on my desk. I think it turned out awesome, so I hope you like it and I can get more people to try it also.
Step 1: Supplies & Tools
For this project you’re going to need a couple tools and supplies.
- 3/16" Drill Bit
- Pencil (writing utensil)
- Tape Measure, Ruler
- Heavy Duty Stapler (this part is optional you could just use glue alone, you would need something else as an anchor then)
- Saw (I used a coping saw, but any fine toothed saw should work, you don't need to cut much)
- Clamps will be a big help, even more so if you’re just using glue.
- About 4 Feet of 3/4" Screen molding (also sold as plywood edging) this is the wood frame of the project.
- A Roll of String (I used mason line)
- Staples (If you’re using them)
- A Piece of Scrap Wood that’s about 1/2" thick
- Paint (optional of course)
