I did a search just to see if anyone else had constructed one of these and I came up with nothing found here on LJ so this should be a first for Lumber Jock, I constructed this folding transportable 4 tier shelving unit out of Knotty Alder, this would be great for those needing to display items on the go such as vendor booths, I finished it in Tung Oil and polyurethane due to the conditions of being indoors and outdoors. Though it’s portable it carries a very sturdy structure, It measures 48 3/4” H x 26” W x 13 1/4 D and weighs 28 lb.

I plan on using it for displaying my boxes.

Thanks everyone, Jim

I’m in the process of building another only using western red cedar this time, going to see how that turns out, I’m poundering if it might be to much on the light side to with stand high winds, it should be a bit lighter then that alder but not by much.

Very Ingenious idea Blackie. You could probably sell the plans to this display stand as well as what you have in it.

Great idea! I’m just glad I don’t have to move my furniture often enough to want to build it!

Actually this would be a cool idea for those folks who sell at weekend craft fairs, flea markets, and swaps.

Great work and function too. If you used Balsa it would cut some serious weight. lol

Great example of “form and Function”. I actually had a folding shelving unit years ago, but it didn’t look nearly as good as yours, plus it was very flimsy. Don’t remember what happened to it.

Actually Tim these can be purchased via online and variouis local stores but why buy import when I can build it the way I want it with wood of choice and getting a quality piece of furinture to boot, A lot of folks would prefer to buy handcrafted over store bought anyway.
