After viewing Greg The Cajun Box Sculptor’s booth display http://lumberjocks.com/projects/78920 I decided to make a change on mine as well and liked the white, I wanted something different and nicer then the covered table setup that I had been using so this is what I came up with.
I made three sets of mated shelf supports with static shelf rest for a total of 6 shelf supports all together, the horizontal 1” x 2” supports that the boards rest on vary in height per each set, as I wanted to have variation in the display, I first started by ripping 2×4’s in half making them 1 1/2” x 1 3/4” on the bandsaw and using those for the vertical uprights front and rear, I used 1” x 2” for horizontal shelf rest and made dado’s in the uprights for the supports to glue into making them non adjustable hence the reason for the variation, the top and bottom of the supports are uncut 2×4’s I measured 16” in width between the rear and front vertical uprights, I then tied them together with 2” hinges one at the top and one at the bottom on each so as to make them fold up and out. I cut 4 – 1” x 12” x 8’ in half creating 8 – 4’ boards I then purchased 4 – 6’ 1” x 12” boards and 4 – 1” x 10” x 8’ boards, all are white wood pine boards and lastly added white paint, once they are assembled with all boards in place they become very stable even in high winds no need to tie them. All sets are 63” tall with the top shelf at 60”.
It took me a couple of weeks to complete them as a whole and the painting was the worse part of the whole deal, after this I think it’s now official, I hate painting.
If anyone is interested or has questions please ask.
