We've written about chess set made of nuts & bolts in the past (how they are a great gift idea - click HERE to read it.) Now we've found a website called CubScoutIdeas.com that shows you exactly how to make your very own. I particularly like how they breakdown what you'll need for each piece. Go to the site and they give you a list of all the materials you will need.
David Brill is a brilliant origamist (is that a word?) He folds some of the most impressive origami - he even publishes the diagrams to show someone else how to fold and recreate his masterpieces.
Check this out!
Why he chose a nut and bolt, we'll never know.
But I do know that folding the paper to look like the threads on a bolt is really impressive! I think the origami world was super impressed too because lots of people have recreated it - just do a Google Image search of "David Brill Origami Nut Bolt" and you'll see plenty of examples of people recreating them.
