#2 Son found out about the Gorilla Glue contest prizes - his favourite raw materials are cardboard boxes and duct tape.
So, he decided to turn a box into a model of my shed. Pay attention, he is particularly proud of the hinge.
(Obligatory plea to your emotions: #2 Son is 8, which is why he's entering via my account. You could see this as a collaboration, since I took the photos and did the writing (but he had to OK it before I published it).)
Step 1: Starting.
Tape it up, and draw on the parts that need removed.
Step 2: Cut
Important thing to notice - the door has been cut out on all four sides.
Step 3: The Hinge.
The hinge is made of a bamboo skewer, trimmed to length.
Hold the door in place, then thread the bamboo (with its convenient point first) through the gaps within the corrugated card.
Trim the skewer to length, and you're done. The hinge works very well, and the door will stay in place at whatever angle you leave it.
Step 4: Furniture
He drew the nets freehand on card from another box, cut them out, folded them and fixed them in place with a piece of tape.
Step 5: Windows.
#2 son (again, trying to out-do me) used the plastic windows from a cardboard box to glaze the windows in his shed.
Step 6: A Final Comparison.
(One final note - this is not my entry to the contest. I have been forced to promise that any prizes it earns go to #2 Son (Kitewife ganged up on me), and I have to ask permission to use them!)
