A friend of mine studied Tae Kwon Do when he was younger and graduated up to Junior Black-belt. Now he has a bunch of colored belts and I decided to build him a rack where he can display them.
I searched the internet for ideas and even got a few good ideas from the LJ fourm. I like the one that phamat built for his son I found similar designs through a Google search. I decided to make it a wall hung display rack because I don’t know where he would be able to put it if it were freestanding.
Finally, I drew it up in Sketchup. and here is what I came up with:
I am amazed at how large this ended up! It is about 33” wide and 33” tall! Before I actually started building it I printed a full scale drawing in Sketchup. This was the first time I actually printed a full scale drawing and I am really quite happy with the result. Fortunately, I have a large format printer that I use to print my bench plans and that made it a bit easier. Even with 11”x 17” paper it took 6 sheets to print it. I then taped the print out onto a piece of foam board.
It looks even bigger than it is because my bench is adjusted down and the foam board is taller than the actual drawing.
I didn’t include it in the sketchup model, but I plan to carve the Korean symbol for “Courage” in the block just under his name.
