K'nex Video Game Box Holder




The is my first K'nex project, so go easy. I got bored one day and decided to put my K'nex to use. I ended up with this, a 12-video game box holder made out of K'nex. It's useful to me since my K'nex don't go to waste and my games are neatly organized. Now I'm broadcasting it on instructables for you to make and enjoy it for yourselves. 

Step 1: Materials

Theseare the specific K'nex pieces that you need for this project:

34 Blue full-moon connectors
74 Grey/Purple half-moon connectors
106 Small Black rods
40 White rods
12 Green connectors
7 White full-moon connectors
16 Orange/Grey Long rods
12 Grey/ Purple round-end connectors
54 Yellow/ Silver rods
35 Yellow half-moon connectors
14 Red/ Green rods
and 12 Orange straight connectors

Step 2: The Base

Very simple. Build this then set aside.

Step 3: The Back

This will take some time, but it is needed for structeral support. Build this and then set it aside.

Step 4: The Floors.

This is very easy. You must make 7 of these and then them aside.

Step 5: The Bars.

This part is also easy. Make 6 of these and set them aside.

Step 6: The Front and Sides.

This may look confusing, but it is very simple. The yellow rods sticking out of the sides are used to keep the game boxes in place. Build this then set it aside.

Step 7: Assemble

Time to assemble your game box holder. The images are a but scrambles, but they show you how to assemble it.

    Can you just slide the games in or do you have to put them in like you would a basket or box?

    Well, I usually end up putting this box on high shelves in my room and I can be some-what of a klutz sometimes. I like keeping the games inside the box if it ever fell over onto the ground, which is why I put the little bars to do keep them in place.
