More playing with living hinges



This was the natural progression of my early experiments with living hinges.

This was done with PG medium maple. The rods are 1/8 inch brass that I cut down with a small hacksaw. Superglue was (so far) sufficient for keeping it together.

I had to engrave the post holes for the rods three times to get a good depth. Probably could’ve done with just two since I discovered afterwards that I had the size tight enough that I needed to lightly tap the rods in with a hammer to get them in.


Innovative, nice.


Very cool! :sunglasses:


I like it. :smiley:


Neat! It looks like a high-tech basket.


@cynd11! Where’s your avatar? Maybe something is goofy here.


Think it might be just you Marion - her avatar is right there. :neutral_face:


Sorry don’t want to divert the topic. What an awesome use of the brass rods. Very clever and creative.


I’m right here just like I’ve always been!


Looks really neat!


This a very creative idea.


Very Nice!
