I found a box for an iPhone 4, sadly missing it's contents. It is made out of pretty stiff cardboard. I thought it would make a nice little drawer.  This is how the IDrawer was born.

Step 1: Materials Needed

Measure to fit inside edges of box top. There is a space there. Lid is taller than the bottom by about the thickness of my cardboard.

 This is a little porcelain knob that I found and had saved to find a use for it someday and I did. Used a self tapping screw a little longer than the knob. You can measure to find the center, but I just eyeballed it. Put a piece of tape over the end that protruded inside. You could use a small bolt instead.
