Kids like boxes right? I designed a small box for the laser cutter that grade sixes can assemble in a few minutes, It has a hinged lid that make a noise so the kids enjoyed making their box and enjoyed annoying there teachers even more with the clicking of the lid opening and shutting.
It took most kids around 20-30 minutes to assemble.
Step 1: Preparation
In addition you will need some acrylic glue, cotton buds, and 5 trays to store all the parts.
There is also a DXF for one box which is nested to speed up the cut time, and reduce waste. You will notice that the front and the back of the box look similar but are different heights, the smaller part goes to the back of the box, which is important or the box will not open.
Step 2: Assembly
- Start with hinged side (the one with the hole) and glue the back (short one) close to the hole.
- Next glue the bottom on and then the front.
- Now fit the top in the hole
- Last glue on the other hinged side.
