1 First, use the hack­saw to cut off the metal joints from the rulers. Lay each ruler along one of the shorter edges of the tray and, us­ing the hack­saw again, cut as nec­es­sary to fit in­side. Don’t con­cern your­self too much about the rough­ness of the cut ends, as these will be hid­den when they’re put in the tray. Use a mix­ture of some show­ing cen­time­tres and some inches (the rulers are dou­ble-sided) and have them fac­ing dif­fer­ent ways for an at­trac­tive ran­dom pat­tern. 2 Once you’re happy with the lay­out of the rulers, be­gin stick­ing them in place care­fully us­ing the hot-glue gun. Take your time and keep adding rulers to fill the in­side of the tray, cut­ting as nec­es­sary so the joints are stag­gered.
