ultralight cup and bowl on 09/29/2009 08:49:55 MDT Print View

Last night the wee little one brought me a origami cup and bowl she made.origami cup
I can see sitting on a windswept ridge trying to fold a cup to drink my tea.
These things are so light they didn't blip my scale. I've used the cup 3 times so far.

Once you have a pattern, you could try one out of some thin closed-cell foam for hot drinks. . .

Okay, I need my meds.

The cup is about the size of a dixie cup because that is what size paper she had.
I'm going to swing by and get some bigger stuff and I'll post the photos.

That's pretty cool.

I use my daughter's old juice bags (Capri Sun or whatever). I cut the top off just under the straw hole. They fold flat but when you want you can "pop" them out and they will stand up (like the old expandable bottom Platapus bags).

Waterproof, cheap, and I've got a ton of them.

I made a light alcohol stove and light a gas stove. Use a common stand. Only wire staples.

Yukio, impressive!

How did you make the gas burner?
