In this Instructable, we build a cardboard aircraft carrier that has room to slide the shoebox inside and out of the way for easy cleaning.
The carrier is loosely based on the Nimitz-class carriers, for those who are into that sort of thing. Also, I can't be held responsible if Maverick does a flyby and makes someone spill their coffee.
NOTE: I won't be very specific with measurements in this instructable, though there are some in the picture notes. The size of everything really depends on the available cardboard and the size of the shoebox. I did most of it by laying out the pieces, marking where they would sit, and trimming to match.
Step 1: Materials
Cardboard for the main components
Tag board (like cereal boxes) to attach the main components
Utility knife or other implements of destruction
Paint pens and/or markers for detailing
Colored construction paper to make it all one color (I didn't use this, maybe when it goes back to dry-dock)
