I decided to build the Albus Dumbledore's Pensieve, as a gift for a friend. The Pensieve was featured in both "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and also visible in the last movie "Harry Potter and the deathly hallows" part 2.

The template consists of four pages of parts. The template and instructions are available here: https://www.mascal.it/old/paper4_e.html

Here are the top and bottom pieces to the stand. I laminated each on to 2mm.

The top and bottom pieces are attached in place (I also attached extra pieced of cardstock to reinforce the connection).

I decided to make additional internal formers to add additional strength to the "stand".

I added a total of six (6) internal formers (two of which help with supporting the Pensieve mount).

Moving on to the base of the basin/cauldron.

Here are the parts for the base of the basin/cauldron.
When working with these components, start with the first one, and slowly work your way through.

It is time to make the ornaments. There are six in total. This can be very tedious (and somewhat frustrating).

Here are the parts for the six ornaments.
20220626_114522.jpg

Starting with the cap-pieces. Here is the top cap.
20220627_091704.jpg

This is the second cap-piece.
20220627_100420.jpg

This is the bottom piece and pedal spindle.
20220627_204423.jpg

The bottom piece and pedal spindle are attached.
20220627_204545.jpg

This is a pedal piece (I cheated and laminated the pedal sides together and put the edge line piece on the pedal).
20220627_204608.jpg

All five pedal pieces are assembled.
20220628_084930.jpg

When attaching the pedal pieces, I attached one in the center of the spindle.

I was requested to build another one. However, I made it without the back-stand. I used three clear plastic strips to make the "bowl" appear to be "floating".

This photo was taken with the flash (to show the plastic strips).
