An experimental project to try joining wood pieces with thread.
Files included (1)
1/4" birch ply
flat waxed cord size 150D/0.8mm
Leather stitching needle
1. cut 12 faces with an 1/8" bit
2. clean up any rough edges
3. Sew it together.
The sewing part is pretty difficult as the shape comes together. I recommend sewing each corner such that it has all 3 connections stitched on both the inside and the outside. I travelled between corners with a stitch on the inside.
My eventual plan is to cut 11 faces from a semitransparent material and then stitch that together and use it as a lamp with either the missing face open to the bottom for a desk lamp or the top for a hanging lamp. It will be easier to stitch with one missing face and you can then pull the stitches tighter which will cause it to flex less once assembled.
I plan to update this project once the final version is complete!
