Thanks for sharing how you made these bowls!! They look so great!  I am wondering, though, how you got the slats to stay put before the final shaping and gluing step...anyone have some hints for me?  I sort of messed around with this idea last night without much luck, and I want to play some more this weekend!

i guess i'm just a little confused. how do you attach a slat to the rest of them, but still manage to not glue it so it can be slid up and down?? i would love to make quite a few, but i just don't get that little step.

I'm working on one now, and what I'm doing is attaching the side-slats with tiny pieces of tape.  I'm also folding a bunch of slats at once, then attaching as a group.
So far, it's working out well Smiley

Okay so there is some confusion about how to keep each ring together (ring is a good word cause when you get your flat disc it looks like the inside of a tree), I omitted at the beginning when I was taping the original coil to itself that you continue taping each ring you put on. This will keep your eventual 'disc' nice and tightly wound together.

Does this make sense?

Do you think Modge Podge would work instead of glue?

I think it would probably work great, I just used white glue cause its all I had. I think modge podge would make it sturdier though.

I finished a little one (pictures coming next week, probably, when I play with our new work camera) and I definitely think this is a future library crafty program!
cbass, about how many strips did you use for yours, especially the traingle-y one?

Library craft program?!? Sweet! My mum is a Librarian, she'll dig on that.

The triangle one took a bit of time. I tried oval and square (sorry no pics of those but they turned out great), but the triangle one was a toughie. I made a triangle out of one slat and just continued to coild around, meanwhile with a gaping hole in the middle. So I just started wrapping slats or coiling them to fill in the middle. My mum said it looked like a cupboard of folded blankets. Smiley

As for number of slats, I haven't counted. I just kept adding until I liked the size.
