Cardboard mail holders

Our house has seven people, so today I made some mail holders to put on our doors.

I basically had some long cardboard boxes, and cut them in half. Then I added new ends and separators in the middle.

I’m not sure if they’ll actually get used. Mail on the floor looks bad, but these aren’t that hot either. If you make some and want to improve the look,¬†you can cover everything in paper or cardstock.

Whiteboard Partition

I wanted a partition to divide my room, and I had a whiteboard sitting around. I sawed it into three parts, and connected them with hinges:

whiteboard 4

hinge (front)

whiteboard 1

hinge (back)

I’m a little embarrassed at having done all this, since it was obvious as soon as I started the partition was way too short to work. I figured I’d still get some experience woodworking (this is my first project). Here’s where it went:

and I never saw it again
