The mesh is then bent as shown.

The mesh is then stapled in place and some tape is used to cover sharp edges.

As the strainer is custom made to suit the container, it doesn?t move at all and you have both hands free to control the molten wax.

It's so awesome that you can just make whatever you want.  I just don't have the knack for stuff like this.

You have to develop the knack.  No one is born knowing how to do things...

I hear you, and I'm sure if I tried more, I'd be better at it, but I'm not naturally good at stuff like this, and my sister, for example, is.  She's always been able to build things, even when she was very little, with Lincoln Logs and Legos and stuff, and I just never had the eye or the mechanical skills for it.  I just don't think like that.  I'm very good at thinking abstractly and logically, but not practically or spatially.   

Michael Bush:
I used to think I could teach anyone anything, but I have had to adjust that to I can teach almost anyone almost anything.  I can see your intelligence in what you write, so I'm quite certain there is nothing you couldn't learn.  It may or may not be more or less instinctual but most things are not instinctual.  They take trial and error and practice.  Being able to visualize something and make it, is a skill worth the effort to gain.  There are too many things that are simply unavailable at any price that you will want in life.  And most of those are relatively simple, not complex.
