We all know that assembling a box is often a pain, but this time around, it could be much simpler than you think.
The instructions for building a Rebuildables factory package from a box are available to anyone with an internet connection.
But, you might be wondering, what’s an assembled box?
What exactly does a Rebuilder do?
And why is it necessary?
We want to get back to Rebuilds original goal, which was to make assembling a reassembled product as painless as possible.
We wanted Rebuild to be easy and quick to build, so we’ve taken the next step by taking our box assembly instruction manual and recreating the assembly process.
This is a step-by-step tutorial that can be adapted to any Rebuild product, including Rebuilder’s original box assembly instructions.
We’ll start by making our box: The box is a rectangular box about the size of a coffee cup.
It’s about a foot square and includes a lid, two screws, and a two-piece hinge.
We’re going to cut the lid off the top.
We’ll then use two of the screws to secure the box in place.
The screws can be attached to any surface that will hold the box together, so the box will be able to be easily moved.
(If you’ve already used an adhesive-free glue to attach the lid, this step should not be necessary.)
We can use two screws to attach this lid to the box.

First, we’ll remove the top of the box from the lid.
Then, we’re going, “What the heck are you doing?”
Here we’re simply pulling out the lid and pushing it into the box with our two screws.
Then we pull out the screws and remove the lid completely.
You’ll see that we’ve made two holes in the lid so that we can attach the box to the shelf.
The box itself has two screws that hold it together.

Let’s see how it looks like after we’ve glued it all together.
We can see the box’s hinges on the left, and the box itself on the right.

We can see this in the photo below, which shows us the box inside.
Here, the box is covered in the same adhesive-like material that the original box was.
If we take one of the two screws we used to attach it to the top, we can now attach the bottom of the lid to it.
We then put the box on the shelf, remove the box, and take it home.
Here’s what the finished box looks like.
The Rebuilder instructions are available in two versions.
You can read them in PDF format, which is the one we’re using here, or you can read the instructions in an easy to follow, easy-to-understand format that we’ll demonstrate below.
To get the instructions, you’ll need Adobe Reader, a PDF reader that supports the latest versions of Microsoft Office and Word, and Mac OS X.
Once you’ve finished reading the instructions and understanding the mechanics of the process, we want you to go through each step and make sure you follow them all to make sure your box is perfect.
Here’s how you can get started assembling your Rebuilder boxes:Open the Rebuild packages directory on your computer.
(This is the directory where your Rebuild files are stored.)
Open Rebuild folders and select the Rebuilt packages directory.
In the Rebuilders directory, you should see two folders: Rebuilder packages and Rebuilder assemblies.
Open the Assembly folders and click the Reassembled package button.
(You may need to use a different name than the ReBuild package, like Rebuilder-packages.rebuilder .)
You’ll see a list of all the packages you have installed.
To make sure all the ReAssembly packages you’ve installed are installed correctly, you can open the Reassemblies folder in the Rebuilding package directory.
(Note: This folder is for all the reassemblies you’ve previously made.)
Select the Reassembly package and press the install button.
Once the install is complete, you’re ready to build.
You can build a Rebuilt box with the instructions below.
This step can be completed in about 30 seconds.
(The Rebuilt package is a subset of the original Rebuilder package.)
This step will be completed within one minute.
(Rebuilder packages are a subset)Now we’ll make sure we have everything we need for our box to assemble.
We will begin by removing the top from the box and using the two-part screws to detach it from the top (you’ll see it in the photos below).
