Cardboard Mario Tunnel/Pipe Corner Table

Introduction: Cardboard Mario Tunnel/Pipe Corner Table

A table for the corner of a room designed to look like one of those pipes from the Mario games. It took forever to make, knowing I didn't have too much time to do it. I haven't painted it yet, but when I do, I'll update the pics.

    Haha, that's pretty cool. I was planning on making a fully-round one out of wood (with a pass-thru hatch)as an access-way to a sub-level in my house. =P

    On a slightly related topic, exactly what type of string/cord are you using there? I have a need for something similar to that for another project but I would like to know what you are using and it's properties, if at all known. =)

    I really have no idea what kind it is or where to get it. I just found a spool of it in my shed. Properties known: It's really tough. I don't think anyone could break it with their hands alone. And good luck on that project~

       That internal support column with the flared ends is a great idea. To prevent the cut ends creeping down, use a few rounds of packaging or duct tape at the bends.

       So make a square column with cuts down the four edges, tape around the column at the ends of the cuts to keep the cuts from 'spreading' and weakening the support, then flare out the ends and glue.

       After all, this is an important structural element that won't be easily accessible after assembly.
