The mold-making sounds promising, and the gecko pavers are one of the pavers that gave me the idea in the first place.

Thanks!

Wow, people!  Y'all are fast...

But, that's not quite what I have in mind.  What I want to figure out how to do is to create my own mold, or "form" as it apparently is more accurately called.  I want to take a shape I have in mind, make my own form, and then pop out some concrete pavers.

Does anyone know of a good tutorial on how to make your own concrete molds for paver stones?  I'm interested in possibly making a puzzle piece path, or some other interlocking design, but I don't know how to mold concrete and get it out of the mold without breaking it.

When I Google it, I keep finding things about toxic mold and removing mold from concrete.  I'm just not hitting the magic search terms, I guess.

Thank you for your help,
Jake
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Crafty garden border needed on: June 18, 2005 06:31:46 AM
I need a little creative help here.  I've been really throwing myself into some landscaping and now, I need to put in a garden border.  It's got to be cheap, decent-looking, and something creative.  I've thought of wine bottles buried bottoms-up, broken concrete, and river rock.  But, I want something other than those fairly common solutions.

Any ideas?

Not yet, my camera's on-loan to a friend, and this is really "ready for primetime" anyway.  A couple more revisions, and I'll have something.

Um maybe Ive heard to much about aluminum and alzheimer's but ....
Drink a can of Coke, lately?

This myth about aluminum being harmful, and alzheimer's specifically, has been around since Rudy Valentino died.  Do a little research.  The world is full of enough real dangers, there's no need to be afraid of the false ones.

http://www.snopes.com/movies/actors/valentin.htm

Scientific American: Is there any proof that Alzheimer's disease is related to exposure to aluminum--for instance, by using aluminum frying pans?

Quote from: the sciam.com article
"In the mind of many scientists, if aluminum plays a role it is most probably a secondary one. The reasoning for this position is based on the fact that aluminum is one of the most abundant and pervasive elements. It is found everywhere--it is in the water we drink, it is in the dust we breathe, it is in many of he substances we use every day such as coke in glass bottles, food preservatives, many cosmetics and food dyes. Even if we stop using pots and pans or underarm deodorants, it will be virtually impossible to avoid aluminum. Given this type of exposure of the general population, if aluminum is playing a major role then one would expect the numbers of people affected by Alzheimer's to be much higher than they are found in epidemiological studies."
  (Emphasis mine.)

Thank you for your help, you two!  After looking at all of those, I had a pretty good idea on how to proceed, and I've made my first prototype.  Now, I need to work on some improvements, and a few more versions later, and I'll have a finished item.

Yeah, I found those.  I need pics for the first one, as I'm a visual learner when it comes to construction and assembly, and I swear I couldn't make heads or tails out of the ten-minute tut...

Thanks for tryin'...

A slipcase is basically an open box.  It has a spine, two sides and a top and bottom.  Everything is assembled and usually covered in cloth, paper, or leather and this case slips over a book to protect it.
