Jeanne has been poking me in my non-spatial places, since I am such a not-fan of cardboard modelling.
Well, I am not one to ignore good pokes.
Do you want to see the contemporary, geek incarnation of cardboard modelling? Building cardboard computer-case prototypes with...this is too funny...somebody from Cumbria. Kind of the ultimate sloyd adventure.
I also remembered that we have a couple of cardboard resources here. Jane Thomson's Decorative Gift Boxes is not exactly Sloyd, because the boxes are pre-printed, punch-out and glue; but they might be a good place to start. For instance, there are a couple of punch-out round boxes (a.k.a. cylinders or can shapes), and if you study those, you could easily figure out how to make your own larger round-based containers.
Making Gift Boxes book by Linda Hendry (now also out of print), which we bought a few years ago and haven't used much. Again, it's not totally Sloyd, but it does include directions for making some of your own boxes (not just decorating premade ones).
