    Current project - display frame - Delivered

    Here's a few pic's of my current project. Actually, it's 1/3 of the current project. No need to tell you what it is, guys like Vaughn should recognize it in an instant.

    This is the project I purchased the new Hitachi drill for - it has way over a hundred pocket screw holes. This pic was taken in my finishing room . I'm just putting a coat of poly on it for protection. All poplar and, yes, it will stand up when completed.

    Aww Frank. You should know. I'll bet you've seen dozens of these at your reenactment fairs.

    No on both guesses.

    OOOOOOOOOOOOO close. But no.

    Here's a hint. Vaughn would see these on weekends and the 2nd and 3rd thirds look exactly like the first third. Each third of a third is 36" x 78" each.

    Yep. A friend works in stained glass and needed a frame to fit inside a 10 x 10 booth area she could hang all her wares on. It has to be sturdy but also lightweight as she normally sets up alone.

    Each of the 3 sections makes a side and they are hinged to fold up on each other like a privacy screen. Adjustable braces will allow the sides to splay out when room is available. All the connections will be with large knurled knobs and T-nuts from Rockler. Four adjustable feet on each group will allow it to be leveled if necessary.

    I'm working on the modular connectors now. Everything has to fold down and be light enough for a single woman to load it in her pick up, so everything has to come apart and sections that fold must also stay folded. Took a lot of noodling to come up with all the connections. I'll post pictures as I complete them.

    (Irrelevant side comment... )
    I thought you replaced that fence around your yard? Maybe I'm mixing you up with someone else...
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
