• Making a Cardboard Roboty Thing

    1,256 views 1 year ago
    In which I demonstrate how I made a cardboard robot using tools and materials from Adam Savage's Maker Box along with a bit of humor to keep it interesting. While I show making a specific robot figure, this video should be used as a source of inspiration. There are a million plus ways to make a robot. Have fun with it!

    Follow me to see what projects I'm working on:

    Dream it. Make it.

    Basic Tools & Materials used:

    Cardboard - use whatever you have

    Metal Ruler - Amazon (this is a 12" size which is much better for smaller projects than the long one I used)

    Clear Plastic Grid Ruler (from Adam's box) - Amazon

    My usual cutting mat (sorry, the Savage Industries cutting mat isn't available at the time of posting) - Amazon

    Olfa Utility Knife (from Adam's box) - Amazon

    SureBonder Glue Gun (as close as I can find to the one in Adam's box) - Amazon

    SureBonder Glue Sticks (as close as I can find to those in Adam's box) - Amazon

    AcrylicPaint (almost any acrylic paint is probably fine. I used what I had already and I had 2 oz containers):

    FolkArt Multi-Surface Pure Black Satin Acrylic Paint (8 oz) - Amazon

    FolkArt Multi-Surface Real Brown Satin Acrylic Paint (8 oz) - Amazon

    FolkArt Multi-Surface Silver Sterling Metallic Acrylic Paint (8 oz) - Amazon

    Run 'n Buff Silver Leaf (0.5oz) - Amazon

    Paintbrushes (I've had some of these paintbrushes for a long time and they aren't all available individually. Use whatever you have, but here are some suggestions):

    Big round paintbrush for larger areas - Amazon

    Tiny paintbrush for details - Amazon

    Craft paintbrush for smashing into small places - Amazon

    Round toothpick (use whatever you have) - Amazon

    Cyanoacrylate Glue - Amazon


    As with any project there are multiple techniques, materials and tools that can be applied. This video just shows what I did for this specific item. Enjoy! Show less
