If you’re like most people, you probably know how to use a screwdriver, but what if you just can’t remember the right way to do it?
That’s where the DIY project “Dissolve Glass Door” comes in.
Created by designer and speaker Laura Zink, the project aims to make the process of cutting glass doors a little easier by allowing you to do so without needing a fancy screwdriver.
Zink, who lives in Toronto, has a PhD in mechanical engineering, and created the DIY glass door project because she’s always wanted to help others make their own DIY project.
Zack Zinn, a self-described “dissolve glass door” enthusiast, is one of the founders of the DIY Project.
The pair, who are both self-taught glass door-makers, have a combined 10 years of experience in making and selling their own glass door products.
In a video about the project posted on the DIY website, Zink says the DIY door project was inspired by the work of a friend of hers, who used a screw driver to remove a small screw from the front of a glass door.
The project also encourages people to create their own “dysfunctional” or “dazzling” glass door by filling the holes with glass.
In the video, Zinks explains how she’s used a small “spade” with a hole cut into it to fill a hole that’s been “dismissed” by the screwdriver from a previous DIY project:Zink explains the process behind the DIY process:Zinks’ “dessolve glass doors” were inspired by “the frustration of getting a screw in to the door of your living room,” and she says her friend told her “the screwdriver is the only tool you have.”
The project is available for $29.95 on the site.
