When you need a mold for your project, it’s best to start with a clean, straight-on sheet of plastic.
But there’s a lot of plastic out there and it’s not always as straight-forward as it could be.
There are ways to get the job done, but we’re going to show you a few ways to start over, over and over again.
Start with a straight-up sheet of polypropylene and the same sheet of sheet metal you used to build your new furniture.
Put the two sheets together, and you’ve got yourself a mold.
If you want to get even more creative, you can even use the plastic that’s already there to make the mold.
This method has the advantage of being more forgiving than other molding methods because it uses the same exact material.
