I got the rolling displays I am making for work as far as I could today. It
turns out there is a router bit I don't own, a 3/8" round over in a 1/4"
shank, I will have to pick one up at work tomorrow. All that is left to do
is roundover all outside edges and slap some water based poly on the real
wood frames and these (I am making a pair) are out of the shop.
I was thinking about adding some additional bracing between the side
verticals and the legs, but holy cow, I cannot believe how rigid the frame
is, I don't think it needs it. The wood is 3-1/2"x3-1/2" spruce joined with
half laps using polyurethane glue. I also pinned all the joints with walnut
Miller Dowels, two horizontally on one side and two vertically on the other.
The 3/4" slat wall sits in a 1-1/2" wide groove that is 3/4" deep. These are
double sided so things can be hung on both sides.
Every neighbourhood has one, in mine, I'm him.
