here are a few piccys of some double sided bookcases.
they are displays for a london shop and i thought you guys might like them.
they are all cut from mdf and just glued and pinned.
for the curved sections i used a double skin of flexi mdf.
making the S and O were loads of fun, but once the glue had gone off they were solid.
have fun

Great Halloween bookcases! Why do they say “Ho-Ho-Ho”?

Excellent work. Those tight curves must have really provided some challenges. How did you accomplish the radii for the S?

HO HO HO is for the christmas shop displays.
the center of the s has slots so that the shelves fit in and lock.
on the outside of the shelves is a 12mm frame to support the flexi Mdf when pinning together, this has a rebate in it so that the edge of the flexi mdf is fidden..this works well and had no real issues with the S all be it fiddly.

It was a joke, Bally… I know what “Ho-Ho-Ho” means…

If you were leaving the store they would say “OH OH OH”. You like that stumpy, haha. Great displays. Impressive to get those curves.

Like them a lot! how did you transfer the pattern to the sheets of MDF?
CNC cutting out the pieces?
