homemade duct tape-cardboard yoyo box


#1

hey guys yesterday i decided to make a small 4 compartment yoyo box. i felt like the ones they sell on yye for like 30$ arent worth it, so i made my own. its entirely made out of duct tape reinforced by cardboard, with magnets that seal it. i did take some pics. i didnt make it to hold my whole collection, just for a few yoyos that i feel like carrying around, r just 1 yoyo, and use the other spaces for parts and strings. i didnt measure and mark the cardboard and make it perfect, so its really misshapen. now that i look at it it looks really badly cut. maybe i shouldnt post the pics? hmm. maybe i shouldnt have measured by eye… whatever, tell me what you think!

That is pretty sweet dude, i have never thought of that, im gonna try it when i get home, but btw what are those throws?


#4

The black/pink is a yyf genesis, the blue one is a yyf popstar and the black one is a yyf 888x


#5

awesome dude, I just prefer to use a laptop case, they have many compartments and can store quite a few yoyos. They also have straps and handles for easy carrying. ;D


#6

Yeah. I have a yoyo bag that holds up to 24 yoyos. My dad keeps his in a pelican case with plastic dividers. I just made this box for like when I go to school or so thin, to have my favorite throws and some spare parts wen I need em.

That’s sweet man! Not that you care but i made one out of an old tackle box I had! http://tapatalk.com/mu/a6898ce4-0218-3aef.jpg

Niceee thats rly neat and organized. The bag i use for my whole collection is about that size. This one is rly just for like 3 yoyos to carry around in my schoolbag. A tackle box seems like a perfect size box tho. Did u cut the holes in the foam urswlf? Or did it come like that? Its hard to come across a bag that holds 24+ yoyos. Usually companies expect u to have no more than like 3 yoyos. Either that or they want u do buy 8 seperate bags to put them in.

haha yeah i understand what your saying. i like the concept of you having an “on the go” case for a couple of daily throws that way you dont just have to throw them in a bag! I had a few boxes i could have used but this one was the smallest one I had and none of my fishing gear was even in it so I decided to use this one. I cut the foam myself and its pretty choppy. (Luckily the yo yos cover up the imperfections lol) But there is enough sopace in there where I could put another layer of throws I do believe so we will see as my collection grows!

The yoyos in the pic are a netal drifter dragonfly whip butterfly and journey right?Wat r the others? I cant see

thats pretty tight, where do you guys get the foam for that?


#12

My box has no foam. It’s square ducttape compartments fitted to the size of an average yoyo.

The bag I use to hold my whole collection came with Predrilled holes.

how long did it take you 2 make?


#14

thats actually a really good idea


#15

the whole thing, about an hour. duct tape and cardboard makes some really good stuff. today i made a camera stand out of duct tape and cardboard, and tested it out. it is made specificly to hold my kodak play-touch. ill post pics if u want.

sweet do it


#17

Haha the foam came put of some package I opened for my mom on accident… Hope she wasn’t planning on sending it back.


#18

The other two are just a couple freehands, nothing fancy in the box yet so its a pretty lame set up lol one day though, hopefully


#19

Nice. By seeing the yoyos u have, I would recommend a YYF protostar. It’ll blow you away. I got mine when I had about the same level throws as you, and I was totally blown away.

Thanks man I’m looking at a few new throws now I got a lyn fury for dirt cheap from a guy off here just to add to the collection and I’m looking for a protostar, or dm2 or something I can get a little more spin time out of
