Lay out 4 of the stencils in a row (L-R) making sure they all look the same (leave 2 stencils aside for top and bottom of box)

Take stencil 2 & 4 and rotate them a 1/4 turn to the left - now you have 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 facing the same direction

Attach stencil 1 & 2 at (ed, fc, gd & he — see construction diagram on Pg 2) at 90°

Attach stencil 2 & 3 at (ip, jo, km & ln — see construction diagram on Pg 2) at 90°

Attach Stencil 3 & 4 at (ed, fc, gd & he — see construction diagram on Pg 2) at 90° - you should have an open box at this point
