"Knitting container for my wife" by David Osborne


The main structure was from one sheet of cardboard. The pinnacle is also the lid of a small container.

Anyone could make this! Huh! You only need Talent, Skill, Knowhow, Experience, an Artistic eye. I mean, how hard can it be... a bit of card, bend it about a bit, of course you'd have to keep it within quite specific planes, then just slap on some paper! Easy! Not sure WHAT paper you'd use though, errm, used betting slips perhaps, the stuff they wrap cheeseburgers in? Yeah, well, probably sumfink like that...Anyway, slap on the paper with.... Pritstick, Copydex errr Denture fixative, that sort of thing, keep doing that until it looks the business then let it dry. If you need to "SpeedDry" use a Gas Axe though you might get a few scorch marks. Then a quick spray of Mondeo undercoat. Bosh,bosh,bosh! Sorted! If you need more advice contact Essex Boy.

Stupid humour aside Mr D, I have to say that this is a fine piece of work. The one-piece-of-card construction intrigues me. Did you use a flat "net" pattern then bend into shape? Did you use corrugated card? How did you prevent warping? I don't want to know your secrets unless you are prepared to produce a proper "public" tutorial (a lot of work I know). So I will continue to ponder. A pity that more people haven't posted comments in this gallery and many others, there's some great stuff here. Oh well.... Anyway, just thought I'd give credit where it's due. ("RESPEC Bruvver)
I will now go and visit other gallaries and leave polite comments.......
