Pacific Ring Weave


#1

Original idea of ringupcycle Gerd Weiland

Ring weave is about used car tires. The side rim of a tire can be cut off on both side
with a box cutter utility knife. The tire rings can be woven to produce a large sheet.

Sub scale models can be made from a bicycle tire inter tube by cutting rings with a scissor.
The with of the rings should be one fourth of the length to simulate car tire ring dimension.
