Introduction: Portable Arduino Prototyping Box

In this instructable I build an easy box for mobile Arduino Prototyping. The Arduino and breadboard circuit are secured so you can work on your circuit while traveling.

Step 1: The Box

Picture of The Box

I just built a simple box using 1/8 inch plywood. I measured the Arduino and breadboard and build the box so it would all fit inside. Remember to make the box tall enough for all the parts and wires in the breadboard.

I just used some duct tape to glue the box together using wood glue.

Step 2: Arduino Board

I mounted the Arduino and Breadboard to a piece of 1/4 plywood so that the whole circuit could be removed from the box together when necessary.

I used some twist ties to hold the Arduino and Breadboard in place. I was able to hold everything upside-down without losing any parts.

I glued 2 3/8 inch plywood pieces to the bottom of the box to keep the bottom twist ties off the box. I used two 1 inch screws to secure the board to the bottom of the box.

Nice job and thank you for using materials and tools I have on
hand. The projects with laser/plasma cutters and 3D printers are
interesting, but I don't have access to those in my part of the rural
South. Scrap plywood, glue, a drill and bits, a saw, and a few wood screws are much
easier to locate in my shop.

Thanks. I was tired of having fragile Arduino circuits that I couldn't move or travel with.
