    Great work, and cool technique. And while I know the sky is the limit for you, Peter, I expect it will also be the rim… Or something. Could you have put it into more shots, I wonder… Thanks for sharing!

    Get a thumb screw for the tension on your scroll saw.

    This would have been an interesting way to make early forms of documentation in ancient times.

    That's awesome Peter! I haven't worked with a scroll saw yet, great to see some different ideas and ways to use it.

    So what's the advantage of such a hinge? It looks weak and about to snap when you bend it and surely it will dry out, crack and wear out due to material fatigue over time, no?

    What would the application for this type of hinge be? It seems like it would be fairly delicate; could you, perhaps, reinforce it with leather to strengthen it?

    not to be mean our but I'm only 11 but I made a cube out of something like that

    Neat! Something else I gotta try now. Why do your distractions become my "to dos"?

    elder scrolls on a scroll saw lol

    I think the narrowness of the kerf may be working against you. When you flex it say / then the bottom edges of the cuts are clashing and forcing the top surface of the wood apart more-so than if the kerf was wide enough for them not to clash.

    quietly wanting to reach through the video and take the imperial symbol out of it.. so nice!!

    Awesome. I'm envisioning some really neat furniture projects now… (And I notice your scroll saw is missing the foot, just like mine! I assume maybe yours is purposeful though, mine I smashed…)

    can't you laserburn it with your modified 3d printer?

    Gettin' jiggy wiv' it! I've seen this sort of thing before but never heard it called a Living Hinge; thanks for the education. Wasn't there a 50s B-movie called 'Night of the Living Hinges'?

    Peter Brown, do you not know Jimmy Diresta?! He makes the flexible wood on the table saw. And…. you've already done equally flexible stuff haven't you??? I'm so confused…

    Wow. What a coincidence. I just finished my last project this Friday. I made a mini skirt out of an a1 sheet of 3mm mdf using living hinges and basic geometry.

    whats the name of the song and boxes you checked to find it?

    Brilliant Peter. The scroll saw is on my "to get" list, quite why I'm not sure, but they same – as shown here – a very useful and versatile bit of kit.
    Great video mate
    Take care

    This was cool and stuff but I just gotta say, what a tease XD

    Not to be a smart ass, but there is a product you can buy that bends without cutting. bendable plywood. it's .25 inch thick. just a suggestion lol.

    That skyrim logo tho

    This would be ideal for a CNC laser cutter. Wish I was able to do personal projects at work, this would be interesting to play with.

    You should use some Beeswax with that to lubricate it. They tend to heat and the blades break very easily, and beeswax prevents that.
