After seeing the stuff in Assassin's Creed Revelations, I was really impressed with what the makers of the game put into it. I wanted to make a really good hookblade, but apparently it would be illegal to make a bladed weapon that uses springs or some mechanics that let the blade come out by itself instead of gravity. So after some thought, I decided to do the next best thing. Make the Bomb Crafting Table, but out of cardboard! (i had no money to make it out of wood.)

Tools you will need-

Multitool
Compass
Ruler
Pencil w/ eraser
Scissors

Materials-

Cardboard (Depending on a custom size, you should get a large box)
Tape
Glue
Bamboo Skewers
Small & Medium Size Paper Clips
Brass Brads

It would be good to have extras of some of these materials in case you mess up.

Step 2: Making the Door/Table

Make the size of the door/table out of one piece of cardboard. I made mine about 13"x16". Next, cut a few strips of cardboard about 1 1/2"-2" and stack them to the desired thickness. This way you can make the door hollow so that you can insert the lock into the inside of the door. When making the layers, put some glue and 2-3 skewers inbetween each layer to add durability to the frame of the door. I added strips of tape inbetween layers to keep them secured to the back and front of the door. Keep a strip or two if you need to cut and add more.

I thought of adding the back layer of the door to make it complete in thickness, I realized that is a bad thing to do. So before you add the back of the door, MAKE SURE THE LOCK IS SECURED INTO THE DOOR BEFORE YOU PUT ON THE BACK!!!

The Lock I shall explain in a later step. But before the next step, tape up three edges of the door. The fourth edge will be for the top side.

Looks like a great candidate object to fiberglass to me. Glass that thing up and it'd be stronger than wood!

I worry about static buildup on fiberglass causing an unwanted spark !!!

I'd worry more about storing explosive materials in a flimsy container. Then again I don't think that worriers make the best explosives handing personnel.
