Laser cutting is an easy way to make a box any size and any shape for any project you may need. In this post I'll be making a circular box for a lamp base. The design is based on another Instructable. The small circle in all the cuts was necessary for our lamp to pass the wires through. Feel free to remove/modify it as necessary!
These are all the parts you will have after laser cutting.
To assemble the base, glue the Base Inner Support (2.) to the Base (3.) along the etched line.
To assemble the lid, glue Lid Inner (5.) onto the Lid Outside (4.)
Glue the Side Wall (1.) all along the edge of the Base Inner Support (2.).
Once the side wall is dry, add the Top Support (6.) onto the other side of the wall.
Voila! Here's the finished base with the lamp we made.
If you don't have access to a laser cutter, don't worry; get creative! There's plenty of alternatives you can use. Here are just a few I found around my house.
