Thread-Tape / connection of Furniture


The screw thread is one of the most commonly used mechanical structures. We can find it everywhere. I try to separate the thread from the screw as a texture, so that we can use it like a tape.

With the help of thread-tape you can make every cylinder things ( glas, rohr....) you have into a screw. What you need to do is just paste the thread tape to the outer surface of the cylinder things and the inner surface of a hole, so that you can connection them together.

The thread-tape is made of PU, however if conditions permit, it can also be made of Bio-pp or paper.
I make myself a shelf as a usage example.
