Cardboard tube furniture

In January I posted my first experiments using cardboard tubing.
See here.

Since then I have continued to find out more useful shapes for this mostly overlooked material.
Using only wood glue you can create almost any geometric shape to use as a stand for various purposes.
In my case I chose a triangular form.

This has proven to be quite useful with both my Speakers and my Printer.

I also got the impression that the stands made my Speakers got a little more resonant. Feel free to give me your Feedback in that matter. šŸ™‚

I also tried to add paint to one of my bedside tables. If you like to add color I suggest you use a sponge paint roller and apply a base coat to the cardboard as it is absorbent and will make any discoloring or prints beneath visible if only the color is applied.

In the end you are only limited by your imagination as to what kind of furniture you can make.
How big can you go?
