Step 1: Parts

After seeing floor samples at Home Depot while shopping there many times, I decided to pick one up every time I purchased something. Since they are high quality wood, I wanted to build something useful out of them. Once I had 5 floor samples, the idea of a box was developed.

Parts:



1. 5 floor samples from Home Depot
2. Construction adhesive


Step 2: Connect First 2 Sides

1. Connect first side to the base with construction adhesive. Use a piece of wood or a book to hold it in place until it is dry.
2. Connect the 2nd side; you can use a piece of masking or duct tape to hold it in place.


Step 3: 3rd and 4th Side

1. After the 2nd side has dried, attached the 3rd side. Place the box on the 3rd side while it is drying to help hold it in place.
2. After the 3rd side has dried, attached the 4th side and place it on the 4th side similar to the previous step.
3. Once all sides have dried, you will have a heavy and solid box to store things in.

I just knew there were people who understood why I love the various wood and carpet and fake grass samples at home depo!!!! Keep up the good work. Also did you know you can get liquid nails in clear at Walmart? Just mentioning in case you wanted it. I was thinking that the side edges could be decorated with something, maybe those little glass balls at the dollar store, then it could be a magic box. Put fabric or something inside to make it pretty.

Thank you! The clear Liquid Nails/Silicone is a great idea. Would make it much cleaner looking. And the decorations on the edges would cover up with grooves quite well.
