Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Board DIY assembly kits provide students and club members with the raw materials they need to hone their design and building skills making something useful — and have a lot of fun in the process.

One of our assembly kits includes enough cardboard lumber to build four of our standard-design chairs, two chairs and a table, or whatever design idea your class or club can come up with. Popular items organizations make with Alta® Boards include:

  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Benches
  • Playhouses
  • Dollhouses
  • Pet Houses
  • Corn Hole (Bags) Games

Why Cardboard Architecture Is a Great Option for Your Next Project

  • Cardboard Houses for KidsStrong. Our cardboard lumber has lumber-like strength, but is about one third the weight of wood, making it easy and safe to work to work with. Our material is used in industrial applications to make pallets, shipping crates, and point of purchase store displays. Your finished product, whatever it is, will be sturdy enough to hold up to whatever use it was designed for.
  • Eco-friendly. In addition, the material is 100 percent paper-based and 100 percent recyclable. Your finished product — table, chair, playhouse, or your own creation — will be strong and eco-friendly. Bringing home an eco-friendly piece of furniture sets a great example for family, friends and neighbors!
  • Design-friendly. Your Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Board kits arrive clean and ready to assemble in a corrugated shipping container. Our cardboard lumber has a smooth surface on which you can easily apply paint, stain or decorative materials. This gives students and club members the opportunity to put their own personal stamp on their item!
  • Simple Raw Materials with Unlimited Creative Potential. The real “secret sauce” of Alta® Boards is their simplicity! While the kit contents — boards, gussets, fasteners, triple wall sheets and white glue — are as basic as building components get, they can be cut and shaped into simple or complex cardboard architectural items. A beginner class can work on our basic table design; an advanced class, a multi-room dollhouse.
  • Indoor and Outdoor. Alta® Boards are available with a moisture-resistant and/or fire-resistant coating. If you are contemplating a project to make patio furniture or an outdoor playhouse, no problem!

In short, Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Boards give your class or club members the opportunity to tackle a DIY building job from start to finish, at whatever level of skill they have. By the end of the project, those skills will have improved!
