Step 1: Select and Prepare Sticks of RAM
Find RAM that look similar to one another. Using RAM with memory banks on only one side works best, as there are flat surfaces to glue together. Make sure all sticks are clean, then arrange to fit. I wanted my trivot to be symetrical, so I cut the pins off of one of the sticks with a dremel.
WARNING! If you cut RAM, who knows what kinds of metals were used; lead or other toxic metal dust could result. Use appropriate protective gear.
Step 2: Arrange and Glue
Arrange the RAM, then glue it. I used Amazing Goop, as that's what I had, and it's strong. Notice the two small piece of wood acting as straight edges to line up the RAM.
Two sticks are placed memory banks down. These are the "feet". The other sticks are placed memory banks up.
Step 3: Finishing
Sand any sharp corners.
Lacquer the glued sticks. The lacquer will make it shiney, and help protect against possible lead or other materials.
Optional: Attach feet to the bottom to keep the table from getting scratched. Felt, cork or hot-glue dots work great.
Step 4: You're Done!
Put the trivot in your kitchen and cook a meal for your S.O.!
