# Horizontal boxes in article class

How can I have a box with multiple boxes inside like the following in the article class?

It should be at the beginning of the page on the left side.

• Looks like a job for tabular to me. – Stephan Lehmke May 12 '13 at 5:58
• At the beginning of all pages? – egreg May 12 '13 at 8:01
• No, only one page and the size of the hole box should be smaller than two line spaces. – nixnotwin May 12 '13 at 8:13

Individuelle box sizes are also possible:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{array}
\begin{document}
\noindent
\begin{tabular}{|*{10}{p{8mm}|}}\hline
\rule{0pt}{1.8\normalbaselineskip}
& & & & & & & & & \\\hline
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
