I did try to video tape myself constructing everything, but it was seriously slowing me down so I had to let that go and just concentrate on getting it done.
The large steps are old Fed Ex boxes and the smaller ones are post office video boxes. I've been hording boxes for over 20 years and finally depleted them with this project. If you want to try this yourself, I will say that it is absolutely, positively, ILLEGAL to use postal material for purposes not intended. So, I do not recommend you going to Fed Ex or the post office and getting boxes. If you do, then I'm going to pretend we never had this conversation. If you've been saving them like I have, then have at it. Besides, I don't think they even make video boxes anymore.
The only thing I'm not pleased with, but would probably do again, is using packing tape instead of glue to connect the boxes. Using glue would have taken longer but it would have given me more options when it came to what materials I could use to cover the boxes. In the end, everything is covered with packing tape, even the poster board. Still, when I want to dismantle these, all I have to do is slice it with an xacto and it will come apart and can go back to flat boxes.
I've still got to label my merchandise, do an inventory, make my signs and sew a few things, but other than all that, I'm ready!
My voice is still wonky, so please pause the video when you need to.
Thanks for watching and stop by my booth!
