Topic tags/keywords: cardboard

Iv’e been experimenting with laminating old cardboard together with wheatpaste (flour and water) and making some pretty usable plywood from it. check out my instructable

what do you guys think? I’m gonna turn that last piece into a stool when it’s dry.

Maybe not wood, but former wood and wood pulp :-))

Your link didn’t work for me, but I’m wondering if it warps because of all the moisture in the glue. I’m laminated cardboard before and had that problem on large flat sheets.

That one works. What are you going to use for the legs of the stool, cardboard?
