iPad Stand: This Instructable will demonstrate how to make a concrete iPad stand from a plastic popcorn bucket, it’s inspired by a project from the Easy Concrete Projects book.

9 Lightbulb Wall Hook

09-diy-concrete-projects

Lightbulb Wall Hook: This is how to make an excellent excuse for driving a lag bolt into your wall, the Concrete Lightbulb Wall Hook. Functional yet sylish, it gives a nice industrial design feel wherever you mount it. Last winter after breaking out the serious cold weather gear, I found myself fighting the coat rack next to the front door. It was, to put it bluntly, failing miserably. Tipping over, breaking off, it was a mess. I swore before the next winter I would drive some serious hooks into the wall that would handle all my heavy overcoat needs. I just haven’t seen any kickass hooks yet that I liked enough to justify making serious holes in my walls. Cut to the last few months. As mentioned in my blog ( here, here, and here) I’ve been playing around, trying to make a concrete lightbulb. Why? Because I find the contrast of blending … (via whamodyne)

15 Concrete Clock

15-diy-concrete-projects

Concrete Clock: This Instructable will show you how to cast a fiber-reinforced concrete clock in a melamine box, using a foam knockout to recess the clock hands and mechanism. About Fiber Reinforced Concrete: CHENG D-FRC is a fiber reinforced concrete mix that is ideal for large or small projects where strength and thinness are desired. Fiber reinforced concrete doesn’t contain rock aggregate, instead it contains a range of fibers that act as the aggregate and help bind it together. The 1/4″ thickness at the face of this clock is less of a concern with D-FRC because it’s designed to be cast thin. The aggregate in regular sacked concrete can be up to 5/8″ in size, and getting small forms to fill without large voids can be tricky (a 5/8″ rock won’t fit in a 1/4″ gap). Concrete without aggregate (cement by itself) is brittle, but with that said, try this project even … (via CHENG Concrete)
