Bellows Mock Pic

Here’s a picture of the little paper bellows I made from a sheet of 8.5×11 paper. I basically fit the 86×72 inch full size plan onto a piece of paper, and then folded it up to see if it would work. In paper its not too hard, even in this micro scale. I worry that in ULF it will be too heavy to hold itself up, particularly since it’s going to be made of leather. My working solution is to get some phenolic to use as the “stiffener” instead of card stock. Phenolic is a paper resin laminate like fiberglass, but because its paper filled, it isĀ  cheaper, and can be made quite thin. A big sheet isn’t cheap, just cheaper than glass. The issue I am running into is that there aren’t many places that sell the stuff in the this area anymore, and shipping would be a fortune I’m guessing. We’ll see what I come up with.

The leather hide is supposed to come next week. I’ll post when I make progress with that and if I find a source for the phenolic.
