    I acutally got really lucky on this… A man at my church is the manager of a box factory. He donated them to me and I now owe him a favor or two. :) But if youre not as lucky, this is where I was going to order them from…. To get 40 it would be around $165-170. Not sure on shipping. Hopefully less than $200 total for you.

    Make sure you dont use a lot of tape when building them, If you plan on reusing them. I only used one strip on each side. That way they dont tear the box up when I break them down.

    hi guys. this is awesome. i was introduced to this site by a friend who attended an event i curated. I worked with a marvelously similar concept on the boxes stacked. I was so amazed to find out that somewhere else on the globe, someone had done a similar thing. Yours looks fabulous. Good job. will post photos of mine soon. cheers, Mike.
