Check out the
video of the stand in action.
We will need:
- two chopsticks (I used wooden ones, were delivered along with some
- some string, about 1m (I used some string for kites, found on the
- an old ballpen.
I drilled (using my pocket knife) a hole in the bottom of each
chopstick, and orthogonal to that a whole into the top of the stick.
Next I took the casing from the ballpen (the grey and green thing). Now,
fiddle the string through the wholes and the ballpen, tie a knot at the
end, and you are done. The string basically follows a figure 8 pattern -
at the bottom the string starts, goes to the ballpen casing, through
that, up to the top of one stick, to the other top, goes back down to
the casing, back through it, down to the bottom of the sticks.
