This one made me smile. Back in the late ’70s, a friend of mine, a machinist, gave me a sheet metal version of a back issue box template as a gift, the same basic one used here. I went nuts, cutting and folding dozens (and dozens) of boxes for my large magazine, small press, and zine collection. These handmade boxes still grace my shelves, and like this Instructable author, I get a special charge out of the boxes I made myself over the commercial ones. Sometimes, simple projects stick with you, have an impact far greater than your expectations and time invested. This box template represents one such memory for me.
