Design

I sketched out the basic structure of my box in my notebook to start. It is a really simple design.

Dimensions of Sides (5 sides: front, back, side 1, side2, top)
  • Front and Back: 20" x 24"
  • Sides: 16" x 24"
  • Top: 16" x 20"
Dimensions of Cutouts: to make this as easy as possible I cut out 3 pieces of cardboard
  • (1) Top: 16" x 20"
  • (2) Front and Side 1: 36" x 24". You will bend this piece parallel to the 24" side, so there will be a bend along the 36" side making one side of the bend 16" x 24" (side 1) and the other side 20" x 24"
  • (3) Back and Side 2: 36" x 24". You will bend this piece parallel to the 24" side, so there will be a bend along the 36" side making one side of the bend 16" x 24" (side 1) and the other side 20" x 24"
Arm Hole Cut Out
  • Cut a 9.25" diameter hole in the center of the Top piece.
  • Cut a 5.25" diameter hole in the center of the Side pieces (16" side of the bended cardboard) that is approx. 2.25 inches from the top.

Assembly
  • With the two 36" x 24" pieces bent at a 90 degree angle, bring them together to form a box. Attach the sides that are touching with tape to temporarily hold them in place.
  • Hot glue the taped sides together (remove tape when you do this). Using a glue gun, glue all the way down the sides on the inside AND outside of the box.
  • Form maximum durability I added some support to the corners with extra pieces of cardboard. See the last two images below. I adhered the supports using a glue gun, then reinforced it using a staple gun.
