Cheap Deck Stand

Deck stands can be made from old cassette boxes. Just glue at joints of lid and lean the lid full back. Let it dry. Do not use cyanoacrylate glues as they fog clear plastic.

This stand is also suitable to hold cards while performing magic.

:lol: In this day and age, it might actually be easier to find playing card stands over cassette cases.

Cool idea! What kind of glue did you use? Resin bond?
You should have your own tv show. :lol:

I used toluene based household glue, it is Peligom brand.

Triangular plastic parts at sides of cassette box lid can be cut flush with a razor saw to hold two decks side by side.

cool. I think I might have a mix tape, or 12, in a box somewhere!! I think Summer Jamz 1985 would make a great deck stand.
