Newbie projects and experiments
Here’s a few successful, small and simple projects I’ve done with plastics over the past year or so.
Tool handles – metled HDPE until I could kneed and twist it, placed into 2x2x6 mold, inserted tool into the hot HDPE, then applied increasing pressure as it cooled. After cooled, I finished it in the table saw, cutting it down to proper size, adding some relief for better grip, etc.
Sheet – melted grocery bags until I could kneed and twist, which ensures good bond and removes air gaps and bubbles, reheated, twisted again, reheated and then placed hot between two sheets of MDF/melamine, applied increasing pressure as it cooled. Finished at table saw and with sander to smooth.
