With the designs I found online, I’ still adjusting this one to make the bendable parts less forced to close it as one of the broken with the origial design!
This one is fine but I will change it again to make it “click” when close!
Will post once I print another one!
I hope u guys like it!
Created with Illustrator!
I have made many vertical ones, you did a nice job with this.
Excellent! It would make a fine handbag as well.
Beautiful! Handle is sweet!
LOVE it! I see lots of these that are neat looking, but don’t catch my fancy enough to want to make one (or ten). THIS one, has my fancy! LOL
That’s just what I was thinking! Great job on it @cordioli!
Wow Gorgeous I love this - mind if i steal the idea lol - im a wine fanatic
Of course not! I’m not the kind of person that get upset about it! I feel good about people “copying me” that means I’ve inspired people! LOL
AND, I’ve been inspired by someone else online anyway!
If I can make one suggestion…
Since wine bottles are pretty heavy, you want extra support on the bottom. If you moved the bottom piece up a bit and have it go through the sides like it does on the little feet part, it’s less likely to have the bottom fall out.
It has support inside!
3 half rounded pcs giving the support and helping to glue things together!
Very nice design. Elegant.
If you are having issues with flexibility and breaking, consider this: You may have chosen the wood grain orientation purposefully for the look, but living hinges flex more readily when the cuts are made along the grain rather than perpendicular to the grain. They also hold together better since the long grain is preserved rather than cut up into pieces.
Will definitely pay attention to this next time!
Not bad. How’d you finish the edges?
Dampening the hinge cuts with alcohol before the first time you flex them can help keep them from cracking. I just rub it into the cuts, then gently start flexing a little at a time until it gets to where I want it, then keep it there while it dries.
Didn’t do anything! Just removed tha masking tape and that’s all.
Love the vertical grain with the horizontal living hinge. That looks really nice!
Looks cool … Guess there isn’t much bend in your living hinge … Or it would snap cutting against the grain.
