Introduction: Dexter Style "project" Tent ;)
Ok, I made this for another project of mine :
Basically I wanted to reduce the amount of wood chips that would endup on my furniture while using a planner and a sander.
I also wanted to keep stuff out from my project while I was staining and varnishing it!
When my roommate came in and saw what I had built it reminded him of the setup used by Dexter when he "goes to work" so I decided to name this the Dexter tent!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials
Most of this can be bought at the dolar store. I think that the whole project cost me less than 10$.
You will need :
- 4 Shower liners (5 if you want to close the top)
- Duct tape!
- thumb tacs/staples/pins/anything that can hold
- Metal wire (or any type of wire)
Step 2: "Sewing"
This step is again pretty easy. Use duct tape to tape the edges of every curtain togheter. Be carefull with the last 2 sides as these will be used to create a doorway.
Creating the doorway isn't to complicated either.
Basically do the same thing as the side walls but only run the duct tape 1/4 of the way as to create an entry point.
Step 4: Hanging Points
Next you're going to reinforce the anchor points by using simple duct tape folded back around the curtain holes and pierce with cisors.
Step 5: Hang It!
Start from the middle (the doorway is the best place to start IMO.
I used staples on the ceiling as those would leave a barely noticable mark on it.
I used metal wire to hang the curtains from the staples to the reinforced holes.
And that's it.... very simple project tent!
