The unofficial one anyway... Wikileaks has just divulged the blueprints for the Instructables Suggestion Box and now it's awesomeness can be replicated. No corporate workplace or hackerspace should be without one. Install one today.
A suggestion box serves as an input point for creative ideas where one can submit anything and everything, anonymously or not. See your ideas take wings and fly. Always available for use. Contribution is open to everyone and participation is encouraged.
Step 1: Rummage about...
You could probably get this thing at that place that has the Easy Buttons, but just cobble it together from scrap material you might have in the shed.
You can fabricate the box from most anything, plastic, wood, metal, cardboard, etc.
I had a few scrap pieces of leftover mdf wainscoting that fit the bill. It is pre-primed so I don't think I will even bother painting it.
You will also need:
2 small hinges for the cover.
A lock hasp.
A small padlock to use on the hasp. If traveling, make sure it is TSA approved or it will get clipped off when they check your luggage.
You may need some more scrap wood to use as support blocking if necessary.
You need a drill and 1/2 inch diameter drill bit to make the mounting hole and slot opening.
You need a utility knife or saw to cut your pieces.
I was able to construct this with hot glue but you can use screws, nails, brads, or regular glue.
For decoration you will need the official Instructables sticker
CAUTION: Know your tools. Sharp things are sharp. Hot things are hot.
