Spring is here and the cardboard project goes on...

Today I was finally able to work with open doors again. It just feels so much nicer to work in daylight.
I've prepared the wooden ribs that will be the plug for my molds. End of this week I will cover it in PU foam and give it a nice Vrijwiel Solo shape. I'm looking forward to this.

The nose won't be as pointy as you can see on the picture.The horizontal pvc pipe couldn't handle the bending for too long and collapsed. I will give it a nice round nose.

I will think about a good hint for those of you who tried to win the test piece bowl but didn't succeed in it. I will post it soon.

Try to use white "Alupex" tubing, you will be able to bend it much more than yellow PVC pipe.

I was wrong, there is nice way to bend PVC pipe:
- in the oven:
- with a heat gun/ hair dryer:
