Bending 3/4" plywood into right angles with a 4" bend radius

I have an idea for a stylized plywood coffee table that is all made from a single board of 3/4" Baltic Birch plywood. I've attached a .jpg of a coffee table base-design to this email.  The bends on either side are 4 inch radius bends. Although I have basically no experience bending plywood, I sincerely doubt 3/4 inch plywood is going to bend into right angles at a 4 inch radius. I may be wrong, but if it is possible, I do not know how to do it, and certainly do not have the equipment. I've seen on the internet very flexible sheets of plywood, but wouldn't that just get glued into position and then just collapse once un-molded? I can't believe that I am the only person who wants to do something like this. Any input?

How to bend plastic optic fiber ?

Hi, I have 0.75, 1 and 1.5mm plastic opic fiber that I am using for my project (which will be the topic of my first instructables ;) ) I need a way to bend the POF in right angle. I don't care if the bending raidus is not very important (spec says max radius is 10 time diameter, 15mm radius is ok for me, and I don't care if I loose a little brightness). I want the POF to stay bend after I have bent it : it must keep the curve I gave it for at least 24 hours. I manage doing something not so bade (but really time consuming) by heating the POF with an hair dryer. I wander if anybody has a better tested idea ? (in the meantime, I'll try putin it in boiling water to see if it kep the shape once cooled). Regards, tReg.

Equation for accurate bending (kerfing) of plywood

I am planning out my first Instructable. It will be a bent (kerfed) plywood coffee table, There have been a growing number of projects out in the 'makeosphere,' where people are cutting slits or kerfs that go almost completely through a thicker piece of wood, allowing it to be easily bent. I am on a super-tight budget, and cannot afford to ruin my $22 sheet of plywood, so I was hoping that someone might be able to help me with some measurements for cutting the kerf-slits in the plywood. Here is the idea all sketched out. I need help with the measurements that are in bold.  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  Materials: 1x | 4 ft. x 2 ft. 3/4 in birch plywood 2x | 3 ft. 5/8 in threaded metal rods 8x | flat washers 4x | standard nuts 4x | "end nuts"  Steps: On the sheet of plywood, measure in X inches and mark X number of cross cut lines, X inches apart. Measure in 2 inches from each end of the board and draw a line. Measure in 2 inches each each side of the board, and draw another line. Drill out a 5/8 inch hold at all 4 of these crossed lines. Thread a standard nut onto each end of the threaded rod and screw it on 1-2 inches roughly, then slip a flat washer over the threaded rod. Bend each end of the board up to create almost 90 degree angles. Insert each end of the threaded rod into the holes, slip a flat washer over the threaded rod and screw on each of the four "end nuts."  Use the standard nuts, and the end nuts to fine tune the bends into 90 degree angles.  Flip the table over, and enjoy.  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *  Stability is more important to me than curve radius. I don't know if spacing cuts close together for a small curve radius is more or less stable than placing the cuts further apart for a larger radius. I've never done this, but I have seen that there is an equation for this. I haven't been able to find the equation actually expressed, I've just heard that there is one. Does anyone know about this area of woodworking/physics?

Rings of Light: Bending u-channel stock

Hello! I'm trying to make rings of brass with a channel/groove on the inside to fit LED strips into. I want the LEDs lining the inside of the brass rings to illuminate the center, but I want them hidden from view for aesthetic reasons. I'm trying to get 7 different rings, varying in diameter from about 7" to 2'. I can't figure out the best way to do this though. Here are some possibilities I've come up with, and I would love your thoughts on their feasibility, how I might tweak them for better effectiveness, or if you all have other ideas that might work better! 1) Bend U-channel stock in a tube bender. Would this deform the u-channel, though, and can rectangular stock go through a bender? 2) Mill a small trench shallower than a standard u-channel into bar stock, then bend it. See concerns in #1. 3) Somehow mill a channel into bar stock once it's already bent..? 4) Bend hollow tubing into a ring, then use a cutting disc or bit on a dremel to cut an opening on the inside, and snake the LED strip through the tubing. 5) Bend hollow tubing into a ring, then drill out holes at the interval of the LED lights, and snake the LED strip through the tubing. Thanks so much for your thoughts, feedback and help! :)

Circuit Bending Workshop at Discovery World (Milwaukee, WI)

Circuit Bending is the art of rewiring and short-circuiting a device to create entirely new sonic possibilities. In a DIY interactive lab environment, learn the basics of electronics by reverse engineering old toys such as the Speak and Spell and other gadgets. Bring an old toy or instrument (check your local thrift store for anything with buttons and a speaker). Then dismantle, adding switches and knobs to create new from the old; this is electronics recycling at its finest. We will be offering two classes in September in October: 1: Intro to Circuit Bending Wednesday | Sept 23 | 6:30 - 9pm $25 Members & MIAD students | $35 Non-Members In this interactive crash course we'll cover the equipment, tools, and techniques needed to start you on your own bending adventure. 2: Circuit Bending Workshop Wednesday | Two-Part Series - Sept 30 & Oct 7 | 6:30-9pm $55 Members & MIAD students | $65 Non-Members In a comprehensive two-part series, participants explore the process of turning toys into noise instruments. We'll cover everything from basic bending and probing techniques to creating noise instruments with knobs, body contacts, photo sensors, and amplifier outputs. CALL (414) 765-8625 FOR RESERVATIONS. Workshops will be held in Discovery World's Electronic Lab, with a maximum class size of 15. What you need to bring: Something to bend- basically anything with buttons and a speaker that runs on batteries (old toys like the Speak and Math and Furby, older Casio keyboards are very bend friendly, guitar effects pedals can be drastically altered), and fresh batteries for your device. Due to the nature of circuit bending there is a high probability of damaging a device beyond repair. If it is valuable to you, don't take it apart! Equipment and beverages (beer for 21+) will be provided, as well as a limited number of toys to bend. Feel free to reply to this post if you have any questions, or e-mail diy@discoveryworld.org

Custom furnishings and home items for people that can't bend over.

My mother has recently developed a kidney issue which causes a severe level of pain whenever she tries to bend over.  We basically need some ideas on re-outfitting the house with better possibilities so she can easily get to her household items without too much discomfort.  She is a stubborn one, and we will catch her writhing in pain before she asks anyone for help.  Because she will try to do these things anyway, we would like to make it alot less painful for her.  It is hard for her to get things out of her bottom cupboards.  I've been envisioning a pull-out platform with a round hole for her cane where she can insert her cane and pull the platform out and grab what she needs, but it would be even better if somehow this stuff could actually come up to her at a standing level.  My mind doesn't quite wrap around it.  I've seen an instructable for her to get things down from the top cupboards and I'm considering trying these out.  We also need a way for her to feed her pets, to set the dogfood bowls down onto the ground and retrieve them without pain.  I was picturing sort of a dolly-looking thing with a crank so she can forklift things up and down to herself.  I can see some of what we need in my head but I don't have the mechanical skills to put these things together.  I'd appreciate seeing some instructables of this nature or geared toward solving these types of problems. Thanks! If you see anything that may be use for me, please post a link and I will also share my findings.

What's the best way to bend coat hanger wire, for making a DIY GameKlip?

So I discovered my Samsung Galaxy S3 supports USB gamepads.  Well long story short, I quickly hacked apart an old original Xbox controller, replaced its 10 foot xbox cable with a 1 inch USB cable, and it works GREAT in most gamepad-supported Android games like Dead Trigger and Shadowgun.  The next obvious move was to make a holder to attach my phone to the gamepad, to have a portable gaming device, like an nVidia Shield.  Now I know commercial solutions exist, like the Gameklip, but they're all designed for the PS3 controller, which I don't have. So I've attached pictures of my first two versions.  The first picture showing the regular coat hanger wire wrapped in black electrical tape.  It held the phone just fine, but it was butt ugly, because I used electrical tape to protect the phone from the steel coat hanger wire.  So I made a second one (2nd picture), using a rubber/plastic coated coat hanger, thinking it would look better, because I wouldn't need to wrap it in electrical tape. Well the problem is that I'm so horribly bad at bending wire, and at planning, and measuring, that I had to make so many corrections, that it too looks butt ugly.  It's a completely different design than the first one, for starters.  I can never think of how to design these things on paper.  I always just get a rough idea in my head, and then play it by ear as I go along.  But because steel coat hanger wire is so incredibly tough, every time I try to bend it with pliers, or a vice grip, I end up damaging the nice plastic coating, making it look ugly.  Multiply that by the number of times I had to make corrections, and well, you can see the result.  The second design is the one I'd like to stick with, however.  Mechanically speaking, it is perfect.  Two nubs on the bottom, and a nub on the left and right sides, hold the phone in place using gravity and friction.  Then the whole thing uses spring-tension to compress the left and right nubs inwards, squeezing the phone in place, but without letting these nubs get in the way of the USB port or the headphone port.  One can adjust the width and tension of these left and right nubs, just by squeezing or stretching them apart, to fit different sized phones and cases.  Finally, two support legs are left at the end of the wire to easily place the whole thing on a table. Both versions are attached to the controller in the same way:  I started with two loops, as small as I could make them, right next to each other.  Then I just bolt the whole thing to the controller through those two loops, and two holes I've drilled in the controller's memory slot.  It's an incredible pain in the ass to try and get the nut and washer in the tiny amount of space in that memory card slot, but I managed to do it twice. I want to build a third, good looking one.  So now I've gone out and invested in some proper, straight steel wire (of the same thickness and stiffness as the coat hanger wire), and some heat-shrink tubing to protect the phone from the steel.  But I need advice on how to do this properly, so that it looks good.  The only way I can use the heat-shrink tubing, is to put it on FIRST, BEFORE bending the wire.  I couldn't possibly imagine how to do it AFTER bending the wire.  But the problem is, I'm worried that my vice grips/pliers will damage it the same way they damaged the plastic coating of the coat hanger. Any suggestions/tips would be greatly appreciated!

Ideas for circuit bending/hacking/case modding the Intellivision Plug N' Play system? Answered

After much frustration with the lack of response from the controls and finding only one decent game on the whole console I've decided to take apart my Intellivision Plug N' Play (abbr. PNP) system. I was thinking about circuit bending or complete circuit hacking the system but I've come up with a load of parts and fun gadget-y components, but no ideas. Could someone please give me an idea of what kind of fun I should have at the console's expense? A short list of things I know that may help you are as follows: 1. I have many Radioshack electronic components (resistors, capacitors, reed switches, IC chips etc.) Feel free to suggest these things, if I don't have the component you mention I may just grab it. 2. So far I've found ABSOLUTELY NO data on the PNP system so as far as reprogramming the thing, it's somewhat out of the question. 3. Here's some photos (below) of the circuitry; hopefully something will help. 4. It doesn't really matter what you think up (even if it's just something that warps the colors onscreen or makes odd noises, I will try it) Many thanks in advance! If a collab. of ideas work together then I may post the finished product in an instructable! (Yes, credit will be given. If I missed giving it to you feel free to yell at me.)
