Introduction: Fruit Bowl
If you're in need of a way to hold fruit, this is the solution for you.
Step 1: Gather the Necessary Materials and Tools
Material: 3 lengths .125" Galvanized Steel Wire, Fruit (optional)
Tools: Wire Cutters, Soldering Torch, Solder, Clips or Spring Clamp, Magnets, Spray Paint (optional)
Time: 1 - 2 Hours
Skill Level: Medium
Step 2: Bend
Bend concentric octagons by scaling the octagon file size in DIWireWare. We tried 100%, 125% and 150%.
Step 3: Bend and Trim
Make sure ends of bent arms are all clipped to similar lengths.
Step 4: Solder
We soldered the first seam with two arms laid flat on the same plane.
Step 5: Finish Soldering
You can then prop the arms up and clip all four together to finish soldering. Once the solder cools, flip the base right-side-up and rest the smallest octagon on the arms. Solder all four joints and repeat with the larger ones.
