From the beginning....

First I would like to say that I am trying my best to do this with spending as little as possible and with items I find around my home.  Second, I have horrible grammar :P.  Lastly, I messed up taking pictures so for the first portion their won't be as many pictures.

First I basically just screwed a sheet of plywood into a $15-20 table from Wal-Mart.  The table before hand was kinda slumped in the middle and you want a perfect level on your platform.
Second I took some random cardboard boxes that were the same we had around our home.  They really don't have to be the same since you can easily make them match.  Tape the bottom of the inside of the box together to make it sturdy, also do the same for the top of the box and connect them where they touch on the side


and other side of the bottom of the boxes.


I also ran out of tape for the next part so I will have to edit this either later tonight, or tomorrow when I get more tape.  <3

  11. This is just something I enjoy doing in my spare time that I can easily make guides and record my progress for the final result. I will admit it's really easy to do and most people probably made stuff like this when they were 8 or younger, lol. But still, I enjoy this and I see it as a stress reliever seeing the progress of it.
