27.0 CARDBOARD USES - DO-IT-YOURSELF - DIY TIPS

Cardboard has got to be on the bottom of the list for most people when it comes to desirable materials. However, I have seen closets made out of cardboard, sturdy furniture, even cardboard boats (there is an annual cardboard boat contest).

You can find it for free, and in quantity. Large boxes may be available from major appliance stores. Cut them with a matte knife. Cardboard can be taped together with duct tape, or glued. It can also be painted with a waterproof coating. You can make it strong by gluing together several layers. If you cross grain these layers it will be even stronger. Cover cardboard with fabric or paint it. If you disguise it well, no one may ever know.

20 years ago, I made a small "light box" out of cardboard for viewing photographic slides. Today I still use that light box.
