At this month’s Repair Cafe we’re encouraging participants to think beyond just repair, to what they can do with their “unfixable” things. Can you repurpose that broken part to build something new? Document your reclaimed parts project for a chance to win some great prizes on Instructables.com!
Tear out all the wood, plastic, metal, fabric and more from your old and failed projects. It’s time to see what new creation emerges from these reclaimed materials!
Featured authors will be on hand at the Repair Cafe to help you write step-by-step instructions, and all participating YuKonstruct members will receive a free Instructables pro account.
Michelle gave a new life to her old typewriter case by transforming it into a suitcase adapted for her sewing and soft furnishing repair supplies for Repair Cafe. Inserts were made on the laser cutter (1/4” plywood).
