I saw M3C's Fork Bug and thought about doing similar but different
I have a bunch of forks, a vice, pliers etc so here goes.
Brute force and ignorance
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: 6 Forks $2
Bought from an opshop, nothing special for the first prototype
Step 2: Bend the Tines
I put the fork in the vice so that I could bend the tines out of the way prior to bending the handle.
The 2 outer tines will become legs and The 2 inner antenna
Step 3: Form the Body
Bend the handle round between the centre tines to form the bug body
Step 4: Make the Legs
I curled the outer tines around into an oval to make the legs, using a pair of pliers
Step 5: Make the Antennae
Bend the centre tines into an antenna shape
Step 6: And Finished
I may weld a screw on the underside so the I can screw into woodwork/walls to use as a hook for keys or similar
