Step 1: Gather Materials

The materials you need for this project includes: 
shoebox (approximately 12x4)
hot glue gun
scissors/exacto knife
cardboard
ruler/tape measure
wooden cylinder (Height: 7in, Diameter: 1.5cm)
paper clips (2 Large)

Step 2: Measure Dividers

Measure out dividers (2) to be placed in shoebox. Use ruler to make both dividers 4inx4in.

Step 3: Cut Dividers

Cut dividers with scissors (or exacto knife) based on measurements from the previous step.

Step 4: Measure Paper Tray

Measure out piece of cardboard for paper tray with ruler (8.5inx11in).

Step 5: Cut Cardboard Paper Tray

Cut cardboard paper tray with scissors (or exacto knife) based on measurements from above.

Step 6: Glue Divider #1

Glue one of the dividers 1.5in away from one end of the box inside of the box.

**It is very helpful to always glue on the inside of the box so it looks aesthetically pleasing**

Step 7: Glue Divider #2

Glue the other divider 2.5in away from one end of the box inside of the box.

Step 8: Glue Paper Tray

The space between the 2 dividers should be about 8.5in, glue the paper tray inside of this space.

Step 9: Glue Wooden Cylinder

In the corner of the 2.5in space in the box, use hot glue gun to glue the wooden cylinder in its upright position.

Step 10: Measure/Cut Legs

With excess cardboard, use scissors to cut two 2inx8in pieces of cardboard.

Step 11: Measure/Cut Four 2inx4in Pieces of Cardboard

Cut four 2inx4in pieces of cardboard using scissors.

Step 12: Glue the Legs

Glue 2 of the 2inx4in pieces of cardboard to the 2inx8in pieces of cardboard at the perpendicular ends (both facing the same direction).

Step 13: Connect the Legs to the Box's Base

Connect the set of stands to opposite sides of the box’s base so it is able to connect to the lab bench.

**These stands might be slightly flimsy, feel free to double them with excess cardboard to make them sturdier**

Step 14: Bend Paper Clips

Bend 2 paper clips in “J”-shaped hooks.

Step 15: Insert Paper Clips to Box

Insert the paper clips through the front face of the cardboard 8in apart so both “J”-hooks are able to hold the ruler(s).
Cool!
