Airbed Box Table



For my education industrial product design, I had to design somting started from a cartboard box.
But this feature had to deal with what the first box packaged.
So after a long brainstorm I decided to make a table from an airbed box.
In this instructable I'll show you what you need and how you can make your own airbed box table.

- 2 pizza boxes ( or another big piece of cardboard)
- 1 airbed box
- 1 marker

Step 2: Cut the Cardboard Leg

cut the cardboard from the pizza-box or the other piece of cardboard,
in a rectangle of 18 by 12cm and create at each 3 cm a fold to make a cut which passes through only one layer of the carton (see pdf ) repeat this step 4 times.

Step 3: Cut the Pin of the Carboard Leg

now you have to make the pins that will fit in the box,
by cutting 1.5 cm off the cardboard except by the 2 part see pdf

Step 4: Connect the Cardboard Legs

connect the end with duct tape

Step 5: Place the Legs on the Box

place the legs on the box check the pdf file

Step 6: Cut the Box

cut the cardboard out like shown on the pdf.
peel the image of the piece of cardboard and paste it on your legs the right way with the glue stick or spray.

Step 7: Legs Into Box

put your legs into the box and secure it by editing some duct tape in the inside of the box on the left side from the leg so it works like a hinge

Step 8: Last Step

tuck your feet and slide the pins into the slots
