I remember Popular Mechanics building one of these as a kid's playhouse back in the 60's. They claimed that if you spray painted the cardboard it would withstand the weather for quite some time.
I would have done anything for these as a little boy, great idea!
Very cool, needs to be in a Maxwell House Coffee tin though ;)
Very clever puzzle, by breaking the wood along the grain you avoid tell-tale unnatural lines. BTW: I would like to challenge any of the "cut and glue the nail" people to actually cut a nail in half and seamlessly glue it back together. Wood is porous and glues easily and can be sanded to hide glue seams, steel does not take glue well and even if you could get glue to hold there would be a visible seam.
Nicely done, your filigree work on the main body reallymakes them pop.
Great Hellgirl! Just shows that you don't need to spend a fortune to make an impression. Good luck with the Corpse Bride.
I see it as more of a play structure than a shelter so I'm less concerned with keeping occupants dry but if you can waterproof the cardboard you can keep a usable dome rather than a sodden heap of paper
Sorry I wasn't trying to criticize your mask, it's actually a very cool project. Just an observation that the English view Guy Fawkes as a bit of a buffoon and of course burn him in effigy every November fifth, amazing what one movie can do.
I think most Americans would be surprised to discover the the real Guy Fawkes was not the romantic anti-hero we see in V for Vendetta. Today he would be called a religious-terrorist for his failed plot to blow up Parliament.
I know other knots but these 3 (and the figure-8) comprise about 99% of the knots I use
