I made this for @Bugaboo in the Box of Whimsies/Miniatures swap, from a picture on her Pinterest. The drawers open, and can hold stuff! It’s about 4" tall.
It’s 3D printed, which took SEVERAL tries to get right, but I’m happy with the results. And now I can print as many as I want!
The not-quite-rights, mistakes, and outright disasters:
The PLA plastic I use for printing is made from corn, and will decompose in a century if exposed to light and moisture, unlike hydrocarbons, which just break into smaller and smaller pieces, but don’t really decompose.
I can melt these failed bits into a mass of plastic (or iron them between sheets of parchment paper for a thin sheet of plastic). I haven’t quite figured out what to do then. Maybe press molds.
I watched a video on turning scraps back into usable filament, but the equipment cost a lot, and the results were uneven. Might be worth it if I were running a printer farm.
