Build a house of matches

We need:
1. Packing matches (at best, we use only 5 boxes.
2. A box from a CD or book (will serve as a table for the assembly, which can be easily rotated , without disturbing the very construction).
3. Coin (ideally - 3 Soviet kopecks, but you can use 2 ruble coins.) Paper money and credit cards do not fit :-))
Position the box from the CD in front of you and start the assembly.
