good idea

I think it's useful, and I think it's pretty genius, but how is this the highest rated? Not that it doesn't deserve a high rating if not the one it has now, but considering it being put in the ratings machine here, you wouldn't think it. Favorited, 5*

Do you read them?

mikstr2 (author)2010-02-09

no offense but this is useless and i hate it...................... jk jk but it does take too many special pieces to be worth it.

~Aeronous~ (author)2010-02-05

 WOW! you are always making useful things! this is great!
I only have a few books, so I'll make one a bit smaller.

Hiyadudez (author)~Aeronous~2010-02-05

Cool! So you are going to make it?

And thanks!

~Aeronous~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-05

 probably, but I'll make a different design. (just flicking through the steps to see how it works.) hey do you mind if I post one like this but remade without the Y clips? (I have tons but lots of other ppl don't) I'll give you %100 credit and title it
Hiyadudez book ends (no Y cips)
or you could just post that.

Hiyadudez (author)~Aeronous~2010-02-05

Thanks! Good luck if you do make them.

Did you actually rate it though?


Shadowman39 (author)2010-02-05

Great idea! I can't believe I can't think of things like this...


Hiyadudez (author)Shadowman392010-02-05

Lol, Thanks!

I just random look around my room + house and see things that are very useful. Then recreate them with knex!

Shadowman39 (author)Hiyadudez2010-02-05

I try that too, but most of the things in my house is either electronic or furniture. :-P

So make furniture out of knex. I'm sure most people have enough for a couch or two. ;)

Lol. :-P

Why not? jk lol

A bed would be cool, but it would be uncomfortable to sleep on. :-p

dsman195276 (author)Shadowman392010-02-05

 Lol, heres a idea, use rubberbands to simulate a spring mattress. It's actually not a impossible idea. Your could probably create one section, and just repeat that to make the mattress. Of coarse, it would still be uncomfortable, but it could work :-)

Shadowman39 (author)dsman1952762010-02-05

Good idea, maybe that would also work for a trampoline, lol.

Well, that would require a lot more bands. That would be the number 1 knex item here though if made well.
