DIY PROTON PACK
WITH THE SUPPLIES
Our lead editor shares tips on how to best start running
“You’re right, no human being would stack books like this.”

The base of the pack is a normal thick box. From there I added a handle and some foam plates to the front and back.
I picked up some electrical boxes, plastic insulating bushings and even a circuit breaker switch and inline fuse holder (all from the electrical aisle), along with various foam circles and rings from the craft store.
I also got sheets of red and silver paper, and glued them on in appropriate locations. I had also picked up a few feet of cut-to-order wire from Lowe’s in various colors. I attached the wire and glued them in place to resemble the original proton packs.
