I posted something similar some time ago - an off cut from a doorstrip/carpet edge.

And you should end up with something like this.

What a cracking idea, bet a corrugated fence looks good. I'll certainly be using the method.

Keep the tips coming.

My first attempt was with a cut up coke can but found that the foil containers from a Chinese take away was perfect.

Thanks for that tip :) . Our Chinese food outlet uses plastic containers but our local supermarket uses the the thicker foil for its quiches. I have been throwing them in the recycling bin :( .

Todays cheap build consists of one sheet of plasticard, coffee stirrers and some balsa. What will it be ?.
