For this assignement we had to work together with the company called Smurfit Kappa. We needed to make something out of corrugated cardboard that already exists but with a new feature added to it.

So I looked at some products of them on their site and I've come up with an idea of making a wine rack out of a cardboard bottle division (picture 3).

Lots of people just throw this things away, so I've made some simple punching holes into it. This way, you can store 3 wine bottles into the cardboard division, with almost no extra costs for the company!

Step 1: What Do You Need?

  • Stanley knife
  • Pensil
  • Ruler
  • Cardboard ( 5mm thickness)
  • Bottle of wine

Step 2: Cutting the Cardboard

Use your Stanley knife to cut out 4 pieces of cardboard (190mm x 255mm) and 3 pieces of cardboard (190mm x 330mm)

Use your ruler and pensil to draw the gaps and cutouts onto the pieces of cardboard. You can find the dimensions in the pictures.

Step 3: Cutting the Holes for the Wine Bottle

Use your Stanley knife to cut out the holes for the wine bottle. Mention that I've used a slim wine bottle with a diameter of 70mm. Some wine bottles have a larger diameter so you need to addept your dimensions ( width +10mm).

Step 4: Putting It All Thogether

Slide all the pieces of cardboard into each other.

Step 5: Your Own Cardboard Wine Rack

Congratulations, you've just made a wine rack out of a cardboard devision!
