Intro: Honeycomb Cardboard
First of all, I want to say sorry if my English is not good. It is because I’m not an American or English. And this is my first instructable.Okay, let’s we talk about my instructable. This is what I called Honey Comb Cardboard. It can be rack, ornament, or etc.
Step 1: Prepare the Tools
- Cutter blade
- stainless steel ruler
- insulating tape
- wood glue + a cup
- paint brush, not for paint but for glue.
1 for water and 3 for the glue.
Step 2: Prepare the Concept
I draw the concept.
Step 3: Prepare the Cardboard
In this instructable, I spent around 20 pieces of cardboard, either 2 layers or 1 layer.
I used 2 kind of cardboard. For the frame, I used 2 layers cardboard, and this is one of the secret of the rack's strength. And for the surfaces, I used 1 layer cardboard.
The surface that receives the most of weight must be counter direction of the cardboard fabric.
After that, cut the other framework. For the frame, I doubled the cardboard.
Step 4: Bond All of the Frame
Please note this: Arrange the frames carefully. Keep maintain the form.
After finished bond all of the frame, I covered all of the surfaces with the 1 layer cardboard. And gave the tape on all of the corner.
In this instructable, I finished 5 hexagons and arranged them into (like) honey comb.
Step 5: Finishing
For the aesthetics, I painted the honey comb with the enamel paint. But, because I didn’t have enough money to buy a compressor and the paint spray tool, so I used the mosquito essence sprayer to spray the paint.. J
Step 6: The Result
And…. Here is the result… I hanged it in my room.
The question is…… Can I sell it?? J. (Thanks for post your comment(s)).
