What kind of sealer did you use?
This is beautiful! Thanks for sharing your hard work and great fun! Looking forward to seeing more.
Love it!
&quot;First draw a isosceles triangle that you can use as a standard&quot;<br><br>I think an isosceles triangle would work, but what you have there is an equilateral triangle.<br><br>Interesting bowl, though. Thank you for sharing.
An equilateral triangle is an isosceles triangle.
But an isosceles triangle is not an equilateral triangle, which is what the author has used...
an isosceles triangle requires for exactly two sides to be congruent, whilst the equilateral triangle three. Though you could argue that the equilateral is an isosceles, it is debunked due to the fact that all sides (of an equilateral triangle) are equal and does not have a side that is not congruent.
This definition, &quot;An isosceles triangle is a triangle with (at least) two equal sides.&quot; is from WolframMathworld: <a href="http://mathworld.wolfram.com/IsoscelesTriangle.html">http://mathworld.wolfram.com/IsoscelesTriangle.html</a>.&nbsp; Wolfram also states, &quot; An equilateral triangle is therefore a special case of an isosceles triangle having not just two, but all three sides and angles equal.&quot;<br> <br> Thanks to Albin Goossen for a clever Instructable!
ahhhh... I always assumed that an isosceles triangle was a triangle with specifically two sides, but I guess not. lol
Amazing !!! great job will it look good if painted ?
Thank you all for the compliments and reactions! <br><br>@ romaine: yes I did. <br><br>@ ib42: the bowl is really very stable and stiff.<br><br>
Great design!
this is awesome!!!
So nice to see upcycling projects, thanks, your idea is great. I'd like to try it with PET.
'or' bananas, of course....
Does the weight of, say, a dozen apples of bananas cause the whole thing to sag and give up?
Great project! I will definitely try this.<br><br>I suppose you put a finishing strip all around?<br><br><br><br>@ Don H. : isn't Mod Podge just PVA glue?
what sealer?
Mod Podge
Lovely project, already added to my favourites <br> <br>Thanks for sharing mate :)
Excellent use of waste paper, great Instructable. The basic shape lends itself to a variety of variations, well done.
You are a genius! This is the best way to store fruits. Good air circulation around the fruits keep them from rotting. And minimum contact with other surfaces.
this is great! I might have to try this.
What an awesome recycle project!
