To work in a home workshop, the author decided to make a low stool.
This will require cuts shaped tube and a plastic bottle (in this case a beer keg).
First, we launch the air from the beer kegs. To do this, put at the center of the vessel cover from the usual plastic bottles and push.
Keep it so until all of the air.
Suggest also to read, both from PET bottle to make a handle for a screwdriver, knife or chisel.
Then cut off beer kegs in the bottom and top.
The resulting cylinder in half lengthwise and the resulting plastic sheet. We’ll use this for the manufacture of seat stool.
The manufacture of the frame
At the next stage start manufacturing the frame. For this we use the profile tube. The cut blanks of the desired length, then weld the frame.
Frame dimensions seat: 30×30 cm leg Height — 30 cm.
The master did a stool under him, and therefore such size. You can also make the stool higher, if needed.
Then cut a piece of plastic the right size. First, the author wanted to tie the sheet to the frame with screws on metal.
But there is a problem — the screws rotate in the metal and does not attract plastic. All because the thread near the bottom of the cap was slightly narrower than at the beginning.
It was therefore decided to use rivets.
Next, take a heat gun and do the shrink. But without fanaticism — so that only sheet a little stretched.
As a result, the seat is perfectly smooth, but at the same time soft.
Step-by-step process of making a stool from a plastic bottle and preferaby you can see in the video below. This idea was shared by YouTube channel “Lefty Ural“.
