Make sure you have a flat surface, and a piece that doesn’t slip when the box slides in place.
Cut the pieces in half and fold them over so they are parallel to the side of the cardboard.
Fold the top back half down and glue it to the bottom.
Now you can glue the box back together.
The box is ready to slide on.
Cut 4″ pieces in the center of the top and fold the other half over.
Fold one piece up to make an opening for the screws.
You can also glue the top to the back if you want to glue it in place, but it’s optional.
Attach the screws to the ply, and glue the front of the wooden frame to the front.
Slide the box in place and you’re done!
You can make the box with any wood that you like, but you’ll want to make sure you use wood that is a little harder than normal to make the pieces that hold it in.
You don’t want to be glueing pieces together that are going to break and get stuck in the wood, or that are too big.
For a sturdy cardboard box, I’d recommend using a 1×2 or 3×4, depending on the thickness of your plywood.
To make the wooden frames, cut a piece (4″ x 2″) to fit your wood frame.
Cut a piece out of 2×4 (3.5cm x 1.5″), and cut a 3×2 piece (2.5m x 2.5mm).
Make sure that your wood pieces are about 1.75″ thick and that you have them lined up with the edges of the wood frame so that the wood pieces don’t get stuck.
Cut a 4″ piece out from the back corner of the frame, and cut 2×2 pieces (1″ x 1″) from each corner.
Make one 4″x5″ piece.
Cut an opening in the ply for the wood bolts and 2×6 pieces, and attach them to the pieces using a wood screw.
You could also use glue for the holes in the sides and the bottom of the holes.
You may need to cut the holes to make these fit.
To glue the pieces together, cut 2 pieces of 6″x7″ wood from the wood on top, and
