I shared the story of making a popcorn corral for our microwave popcorn in Made On a Glowforge, but here’s the file in case anyone wants it. Made to fit and hold a brown paper lunch bag upright in the microwave. Made with 1/8" wood. I did find that I had to glue just one side, but mostly it’s a tight fit. And I don’t think it would work with store-bought microwave popcorn bags, as they’re a different size than the brown paper lunch bags, plus they end up on their sides when they pop. Personal use only, of course.
Oh I love it! I’ve never done the brown paper bag popcorn but I might try it. Thank you for the share!
You’re welcome. 1/4 cup popcorn, fold the bag top down 1" and just keep folding towards the bottom, 3 minutes on high until the popping slows down to about 3 seconds between pops, then take it out. We add popcorn topping oil and salt or seasoning after we put it in a bowl, and just mix it up. Let me know if you try it!
We do this too! Saw it on an episode of Good Eats years ago.
Oh cool! Thanks for the share.
Clever idea for a holder! I got a silicone popper (no oil) because I’m obsessed with popcorn, but we tried this a few times.
