Step 2: Cutting the wood

Using a ruler and a marker mark all of the wood so that you can cut it straight and at the proper dimensions. Cut all of the wood using a saw.

Once the wood is cut, using the sandpaper make sure the sides of each piece of wood is smooth.

Step 3: Making the paper holder

Take all of the wood for the paper holder.

Connect the backwall of the paper holder to the side of the base by drilling four holes with a 5/32 inch width, two inches apart from each other

Connect the sidewall to the backwall of the paper holder using the wood glue.

When all of the wood is glued together to make a box clamp the glued areas together until the glue dries properly. 

Step 5: Ruler Holder

Take the wood for the back wall and set it aside. Take the cardboard and measure 4 12''x.5'' and hot glue two of them on top of each other so you have two 1.5''x1'' pieces of cardboard. 

Sand the cardboard so the edges are smooth





Step 6: Ruler Holder Continued

When the glue dries connect the sidewalls to the open end of the paper sidewall with hot glue

Then when the sidewalls are done hot glue the back of the ruler holder so it makes a box

If the sidewalls are taller than the back wall then you can cut off the tops so that it is even.
