  • My attempt at a web

    There is an access opening to the crawl space under my house that the previous owner had covered with an old piece of Plexiglas wedged between the siding and the planet earth. I decided to throw together a quick door as an upgrade. Turned out not to be all that quick, there are over 40 pieces to that thing.....

    At any rate, I thought it came out okay, have a look;

          Thanks for the replies guys.

          The bend radius is unknown. I just ran some 1/4" rod through the little HF ring roller till it looked about right. The radius does increase with each ring progressing from the center, in order to maintain about a 1 3/4" spacing.

                Maybe you should atach a piece of pleiglass to the back of it to keep more critters from moving in, great work.

                  Thats what I was thinking, a mouse or snake might see that as a welcome mat.

                  In all the web looks fantastic, great job. Someday I'll try something like that. I'm fascinated with spider webs, love to watch spiders make them.

                      this was my first atemp at a web(bumper), i added a spider to mine.

                      a plexerglass back would be a good idea if there is no window behind it.

                      on my 2nd atempt ( pow14 ) i added a spider i made ( pow18) as aposed to the lil plastic one my son asked me to put on the first one.
                      they are great fun.

                      maybe some others will offer up there atemps at webs, this can become a web-site..
