When making prototype at home, you need either a dedicated space for your experiments or some kind of space to organize your materials one you're finished.

In my case I don't have a dedicated space so I needed a way to organize my Arduino work while keeping it safe from my children.

I decided to design something small, convenient, allowing some storage and able to be easily folded after my work.

As you know I love working with cardboard, so there is cardboard in there ;-)

Let's see what I ended with!

What you will need

  • Utility knife
  • Cardboard (I used my new printer box in this I'ble)
  • Pen
  • Ruler
  • A shoe box (mine is about 32x26x10cm)
  • Another box (mine is an electronic delivery box I had when ordering some parts for my on-going ARDUINO prototype)
  • glue gun with hot glue

Note: Your own design will highly depend on the boxes you will find.

Let's make it!

Step 1: General organisation

I will organize my workbench with two levels:

  1. Lower level ==> storage of electronic components, on the left-hand side, the large components (motors, screens...), on the right-hand side, small components (leds...)
  2. Higher level ==> the protoyping workbench with breadboard and electronic boards (in my case arduino) on the left-hand side, another storage area on the right-hand side to store the cables etc...

The main aim is to have all my electronic prototypes and tools organize, stored and safe.

Great "re-use" project, I like it!
