Flat pack is a term often used to describe ready-to-assemble furniture, but there are many things that fit into this category. In the Flat Pack Contest, we want you to make furniture and any other objects that can be neatly broken down to be compactly stored when not in use.

Prizes include a Dewalt variable-speed router kit, router edge guide with vacuum adapter, 15-piece router bit set, and more. Pack it up, pack it in!

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Flat Pack Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
