I wanted to post my DIY Kief box tutorial that I did back in Jan. I have been out of buds for a month now(damn sativa grow:smiles:), but since I saved all my trim from the last three harvests, I have been smoking kief and hash for the entire month. This setup is quite the producer, due to it's size. It's still working great eight months later!
I am posting my DIY kief box for those who might be interested in a low budget alternative to Bubblebags or just overpriced kief boxes. So after eating some cannabutter brownies for breakfast(MMMmmm!!!), I went to my local Micheal's Art and Crafts. I asked for silk screen and got pointed to there t-shirt making section. Sure enough they had a premounted 110 Micron screen. It is 15x19 inches total, with 11x14 screen area. I searched around the store, for a suitable box to collect the kief. My search led me to the framing department where they had a selection of shadow box frames. I found one that was 12x16, which was close to the screens 11x14. The shadow box style is perfect, as the glass is fixed in place and there is a good three inches of height to the frame, making it perfect to collect trichs! The screen is fixed in a metal border and it sits perfectly on the back of the frame. I am currently thinking of ways to attach the screen to the box, maybe some pegs coming out of the frame that the screen can sit on. You can easily drill through the metal border and something to hold it in place will be nice. Look for future updates!!
12x16 Shadow Box frame
110 micron premounted silk screen
I removed the back of the frame, but keep it for later usage.
Screen area fits perfectly above frame opening!
Silk screen $20
Shadow box frame $15
TOTAL for DIY Kief box $35
The frame and screen are very well built. I think this setup is a bargain for the price and ZERO setup. So results...............????
