You can use this jig to make rope out of twine. Pretty simple build except the gears…not sure where they came from. https://www.instructables.com/id/RopeCord-Maker/

Nice plastic bender

This is a pretty slick looking build to bend plastic into shapes. Note you most likely want to do this in a well ventilated place. I like the pre-made angles for the build too. https://www.instructables.com/id/Acrylic-Bending-Tool/
