Introduction: Chest 6" (opening)

Picture of Chest 6" (opening)

A pretty simple 6" opening chest.

Shown here with eight 2-3/4" opening chests and a 1-1/4" opening chest.

Step 1: Nesting Chests/blocks

Picture of Nesting Chests/blocks

You can easily nest eight 2-3/4" chests/blocks inside the 6" opening chest.

You can also easily nest eight 1-2/5" chests/blocks inside each 2-3/4" opening chest.

This means you can store 64 1-1/4" chests/blocks inside each 6" opening chest.

Step 2: Printing and Folding

Picture of Printing and Folding

You'll need to print 3 copies of A-B, 1 copy of C, and 1 copy of D-E.

Fold along the dashed lines. Cut slits where indicated on C and D.

Glue the brown flaps indicated with the blue arrows (this just gives a little stiffness around the opening of the chest when it is assembled). Make sure to not glue where you cut the slit on C (or you won't be able to tuck the latch in).

Don't glue the white tabs yet.

Step 3: Assembling

Picture of Assembling

Assemble the top by gluing three A's to D.

Assemble the bottom by gluing three B's to C.

Attach the bottom and the top by gluing each to E (glue E on the inside of the top and bottom).

Step 4: All the Pieces

Very nice! These kind of look minecraft-y. Was that the intention? Pretty cool stuff!

Yep. My son is really into Minecraft, but has been spending too much time on the computer. Papercraft Minecraft was a good tradeoff - I just needed somewhere to store all the cubes - this seemed like a pretty good solution.
