Hey @brendonscrimgeour !

Awesome work you made there with the little rocking chair !
(Such a cute little photogenic baby hehe)
I’m curious about your technique, how did you asemble the different “beams” ? I see you made some specific cuts, but did you use some glue or?
Also ; is that fused LLDPE Pallet wrap i see? if so, i love you !! :)))

 

Congratz !
peace

i’m so proud of you !! the result is so awesome !! i didn’t even think of using the LLDPE pallet wrap as a chair/hammack “textile” material?
can i have a guess of the other plastic used; HDPE ? the way light goes through seems you used transparent and white ?

Please do a video of the process, i’m really curious to see how processed the forms and welding

maybe using the help put here ? *hint hint*

like that i’ll do a clear one for my LLDPE system & you for the rocking chair !!!

Peace!

the plastic I’m using is still no.5 PP (clear/white dvd cases and also that stuff that holds lumber/wood together i can get for free from local hardware places)

if you would like a video of the process i could do one as I’m thinking of quite a few different ideas now and can record the next one.. i am about to head overseas for a 1 month trip so you might have to wait =(

You could weld the parts using a heat gun as well

maybe you can add some colaboration with resin-composite that is easily molded and quite strong

Got back from my holiday last week and have been working/filming a short ‘How to’ video on my process of recycling plastic. I have just finished the bed side table (bigger then what it looks) and just need a few more shots for the video, will hopefully upload tomorrow and will post the Youtube link then.

Bed Side Table measurements – H: 550mm – L: 360mm – W: 410mm – Made from recycled clear polypropylene and 15mm copper pipes

Thanks

PS. pick me for V4

@dbougas
@imuh

added the video for you guys to watch, let me know what you think. I used a BBQ for the heat source at a very low/slow temperature, this has given me many more ideas for portability (ie. bicycle trailer) as well as a much larger oven area to use.

ill be making a video on making the mould and will get it out early next week.

please let me know your thoughts
peace

few extra images.

So, I was super inspired and always had a “plank” in mind so using your cool design as my muse I made this. The aim is to make planks for school desks in Tanzania. And get this, the local welder charged me $35 for this mould. I’m getting my large oven on Monday so I’ll post an update of how the casting goes if the first “Pamoja Plank”!
