Initiation au bricolage par Serge-Henri
A tidy up stool
one 30 liters (480 x 276 mm) iron barrel, with handles. (if possible)
one 265 x 10 mm disc made of pressed wood chips.
one 280 x 10 mm disc made of pressed wood chips.
one 6 x 40 mm milled head screw.
one 6 mm nut and one 6 mm washer.
one 280 x 40 mm foam disc.
1 cotton cover.
52 gilded nails with convex heads.
Cut out the disc made of pressed wood chips with a jigsaw machine, following the circles you will have drawn.
Finish it properly with the rasp. (for wood)
Drill the 6 mm hole and countersink up to 12 mm to embed the head.
Set your discs on the barrel to see if they perfectly fit together.
The foam disc is cut out with a band saw or a heating wire.
The cotton cover can be cut out in overalls.
Force the 6 mm screw in the 280 mm wooden disc.
Put on the top of this the foam disc and the cotton cover.
Wrap the whole thing doing about 13 folds towards the center : you will staple all these folds.
To hide all that, thread the second wooden disc, the washer and the nut.
Maintain the screw with a multi-grip while tightening the nut with a 10 mm spanner and cut the surplus off with a hacksaw.
Arrange all the gilted nails around. (leave a one-head space between 2 nails)
Achieve the decoration with a few paint sprays (white, blue, green, yellow, day-glo red...) and stickers.
Paint the inside with white.
Be careful, to paint the outside, the barrel needs to be laid and only the edges will touch the ground. (use wooden wedges)
Paint in stages letting dry the paint after each spraying, before turning the barrel, if not there will be ungainly trickles of paint !
Small paint sprays can be found in the stores of modelmakers.
The barrel can be found in the supermarkets during the beginning of the school year.
But, this is another story !
