Introduction: COCONUT SHELL BENZOIN RESIN (SAMBARANI) POT
In my home (also all our home) we use coconuts to our daily cooking purpose and Pooja's. After using that coconuts, we throw away that carrying shells throw away, that throw away shells are lots ( may be kilos), that's are a lot also in my home,
Normally in our home use that coconut shells as to burn the ovens.
Not only to do this, I try to do use that coconut shells in a different ways, so that I prepared this type of one product by using coconut shells,
AND THIS PRODUCT IS MADE UPON 5 RE-USED MATERIALS.
Step 1: BENEFITS OF USING BENZOIN RESIN (SAMBARANI) IN OUR HOME AND TO OUR HEALTH
If there is one tradition that I completely love and makes me and mine family feels very good is use Sambarani (benzoin resin).
The resin from the one of the tree that is dried, powdered and sold in the markets either as powder or blocks,
This is a culture in every Indian homes.
--- Anti-septic and disinfectant,
--- Anti-depressants and sedative,
Let's go inside the work to do.....
Step 2: PREPARING COCONUT SHELLS
Before doing product, heat the outer sides of the coconut shells, Do this coconut fibres that on stick outside of coconut shells that are burnt in the heat.
Step 3: ABRADE
After heating the outer side of the coconut shells use the rough emery and rub the all sides (outer side, inner side) is the coconut shells, do this removes fingers and give smooth surface finish to coconut shells. And also flatten the edges of the coconut shells.
Step 4: PREPARING THE BASE
Do the same above process and prepare the base also.
After finish the above stick the base with lower shell with the help of glue, use wooden particles with the glue to extra strong....
Let dry to more than 1 hour..
Step 5: STICK SMALL KNIT BAR ON BOTH EDGES OF THE COCONUT SHELLS
Stick an small knit bar on both round edges of upper and lower coconut shells,
-> Do this on upper shell, use as to join the lower shell with upper shell via thread.
-> Do this on lower shell acts as decorative purpose.
Step 6: INNER TRAY
To place the benzoin resin (computer sambarani)I use the tray inside(headphone and charger held tray) in the mobile box .
Step 7: GLUING THE SPONGES
In the upper and lower edges of the shells apply the Glu and stick the sponges, Do this fog from the sambarani do not allow to escape to the outside of the coconut shell during its closes.
Step 8: DOING OPEN AND CLOSE LOOP
I had planned to do this product as portable and easy handling to fix in and out of SAMBARANI after its complete fire.
But do this we need put holes on the shells, during put drill on the shells there is an chance to broke.... So that I decided to do something on that for replace drill on the shells.
That were, take the two hair pins (normally womens use this pins do not dissolve hairs on air) and insert on one side of the coconut shells, and put an small pin or ear buds tubes (remove sponges) on top of gap inside the hair pin and make the stick or tube freely rotate according to the pin shown in image.
And use the threads join the upper and lower shells along with stick to make try to loop form to rotate upper coconut shells freely to open and close according with lower coconut shells...
And so the same above process on another edge of the stick and make the thread loop, do this upper shell make free open and close according to the lower shell via this loop.
Step 9: WRONG THOUGHT......
After doing trial, I get shocked that the inner trays do not withstand the heat from the sambarani and it get dry holes on trays.. here All my thoughts are become false.
Step 10: REPLACE WITH NEW ONE
After that I decided to replace that tray with good one for that I use ACOUSTIC LAMP to easy keep in and keep out sambarani during and after its firing..
Step 11: FINISHED
All the works are done and ready to use kept on my home Pooja room and flame it in twice a week.
Step 12: REMOVE ASHES EASY
And after flaming is done on sambarani throw away the ashes within acoustic lamp safely.
Again at ready to flame the sambarani..
