Designing a beaded sinnet stand

I'm taking one of those massive open online courses from Coursera, in particular, the Design class and foolishly decided, as my class project, to work on my current obsession, making a beaded sinnet stand. As part of my class, I'm supposed to gather 5 peers who are experiencing the same problem and interview them (among other things, that will be revealed to me as the class progresses). So, I need your help for my class! More on that at the end of the post. Read more

Double Plafond Prototype: First Working Model

double plafond prototype first working model Remove the scaffold and “tada!!” it works. happy dance. The knot is front back symmetric and the sides of the frame are fortunately balanced. I like it.

I’m thinking that would be easier to tie (without a scaffold) in the long run and expandable to however many units in the centre of the frame you might want. There’s also the figuring out of how to tie this one without a scaffold.

Double Plafond Prototype: Tied on Scaffold

double plafond prototype tied on scaffold I started tying this knot on the scaffold and for some reason didn’t have my bodkin. Slow and painful going. I got to the second pass through the top single plafond before I gave it up until I got home and could locate one of my many bodkins. Using a bodkin made it all so much easier. So, here it is, tied on the scaffold. Looks good. Did I overlook something? Will I have what I expect when I remove the scaffold? What do you think? 8)
