You may already know the basic principles behind deck boxes, but what if you need more creative ideas to build your own?
We’ve put together some of the best deck boxes available online.
We’ll cover the basics of deck boxes from beginner to expert, but if you want to build a deck box that’s bigger and better, we’ve also put together a guide for you.
Here’s what you need to know before you get started:The BasicsYou’ll need: A sturdy box, at least 5-6 feet (1.5-2 meters) long, to hold your cards and cards contents (we’ll cover this in more detail later).
A box that fits snugly into your cabinet or wall.
A sturdy board to hold the deck and cards.
A box for the game box and the box itself.
A plastic or metal bowl for keeping your game components and tokens in.
A sturdy box for your cards to sit on, a box that is at least 7 inches (18 cm) long.
You may want to choose an older, more durable box for this purpose.
A wooden box for playing cards and tokens.
A metal bowl to keep your tokens in and your game pieces.
A metal bowl that fits into your deck box.
A wooden board for the deck box and a wooden board that fits in your game box.
A steel box that will fit into the box for safekeeping.
A wood board that is 7 inches by 6 inches (19 cm by 11 cm) wide.
The Basics of Card GamesHow to Make Your Own Deck BoxFor this project, we will be using a standard deck box from the most popular game manufacturers.
We will be making this one from scratch.
It should work out well, but the details are important.
First, we’ll need a wooden deck box to hold our game components.
We can use the cheapest cardboard we can find.
We’ll be using 8.5 x 11 inch (20 x 25 cm) boards.
For the box to be sturdy, the top will need to be at least two inches (5 cm) thick.
We also need a sturdy box that can be folded up into a 6-foot (1 meter) long deck box (which will fit inside the deckbox).
It will need the following components:A cardboard box with the deck boxes sides facing out (see photo above).
A cardboard board for storing your cards (see the photo below).
A wooden bowl for holding your game parts and tokens (see a photo below.)
A wooden base for the board.
A box for holding the game components (see photos below).
To build this box, we need:A sturdy cardboard box for each deck box:A wooden box to store your game boxes contents (see previous section).
A sturdy wooden board (see above).
For the box, it will be necessary to use the cardboard base, but you can use any type of cardboard for this project.
We recommend using a thick, durable board that will hold your game cards.
We also recommend a wood board for safe keeping.

The DeckBox will be divided into two halves.
You can divide the board into two parts, or you can simply use the two halves of the box together to make one deck box with two halves, as long as you keep the cardboard bases in place.
To build the box and game components, we are going to split the box into two sections:The deck box is divided into sections, such that each section is 6 inches by 5 inches (15.5 cm by 10 cm).
You may need to split it up as necessary, or it may be easier to cut out sections with scissors.
The sides of the deck block will be facing inwards, and the back of the board will be up, so the sides of your board will not be facing outward.
The cardboard will be used for your board.
You will need:4 1/2 by 2 inches (6 x 4 cm) card stock.
A 1-foot piece of 1-inch (25.6 mm) board (6-inch by 5-inch) thick, about 1-2 feet (45-cm by 25-cm) long or a thick piece of 5-by-7-inch cardboard.
A cardboard base for your game board.
The base should be at or below the table surface.
For our project, it should be solid enough to hold cards.
For the base, it is also recommended that you add a wooden dowel to support the board, as we will need this later.
You also will need a 1-1/2-inch thick piece for the dowel.
For your dowel, we recommend a 5-pound (2 kg) piece.
You should not need to buy a dowel of this size, as a 5 lb. (2.5 kg) dowel is already sufficient for this game.
To make the dowels, we use our hobby-
