Picture of Cardboard Props: How to make a Builders Hod
First an apology to you the reader for showing you an unfinished article. Basically during the making process one of the producers of the show, cut the line that referenced to the Hod,in a fit of rage i tore the Hod into pieces and recycled the parts to make the Thors Hammer prop shown in my Instructable feed. During the show i was asked to produce the Hod as the line had been put back in... I saw red and someone had to make something to fit the gap...

So anyway this instructable is all that remains of the item I made, all i hope is that one day it helps someone who needs to build one for whatever reason.

With this instructable i found it easier to start at the top of the Hod. it's very simple to do.

You will need to cut two rectangles the same size, and glue them into a V shape. I  did this by hot melt glue gunning my 90 degree set square at one end to make sure i got a true 90 degree angle. I also cut two smaller 90 degree triangles to re-enforce the shape. I glued them all together using the glue gun...

Step 3:

To form the closed in end of the Hod i cut out a square of cardboard and glued it in place in much the same way as the last step. The cardboard square needs to be the same width as the two rectangular pieces in the last step. I also re-enforced this section using two small 90 degree triangles.
