Hi!

Another game that needs an insert badly! So here comes my own design, feel free to built it. I have included the dimensions if you want to give it a try. If you liked it, take a look at my other inserts! (links at the end)



Iello French version, look at the size of your box before starting!



Everything fits flush



Top tray



Bottom trays



General view



Dimensions of top tray



Dimensions of bottom tray 1



Dimensions of bottom tray 2

Perfect! Did you use glue? What's the best way to cut the foam?

I used hot glue gun. I cut the foam with a metal rule and a Olfa knife like the L-1 or L-2. Don't go with smaller knife or el cheapo brands from dollar store.

PVA glue works great. Another good tip is use dressmaker pins (or some other thin pins) to hold the pieces together until the glue dries. Basically after adding each piece to the base, push 2 or more pins in strategic places to keep in it place. When glue has dried you can remove the pins. Usually the holes the pins leave are very discreet, if it bothers you, you can dab a tiny blob of glue on the hole (that works great on white foamboard, not sure about black though).

Thank you for the plans! I'm hoping to get this one done this weekend. One quick question - what is the height of the three dividers in Bottom Tray 2? I gather they're 122 mm long, but I can't for the life of me figure out the height from your plans.

Thanks, again!
