Project Information

This display cabinet measures 18×18 inches square and stands 30 inches tall. It rotates an a lazy susan base. It is made out of 3/4 walnut plywood and 3/4×3/4 inch solid edge bands. One side is an access door for storing more literature. The literature is displayed behind 1/8 in Lexan plastic. The edge bands are attached with biscuits because the veneer is so thin. Not much margin for error with that stuff. The shelves for storage are made of 1/4 Melamine and are reinforced with strong backs for support. The door is hung with loose pin hinges and a small barrel bolt holds the door tight. Up till now my friend in charge of the literature used to display the material on a table and used large washers or rocks to keep the material from blowing away. This cabinet will be greatly appreciated by those who have chased down the blown away material on a windy day. The cabinet is screwed and plugged through the edge bands as well a glued. I hope that it will be used for a long time. I just visited the church where the tract display is being used. For the last few Sundays the rain had prevented its outdoor display. Eventually they will have a dedicated cart, but in the mean time they are using an old AV cart.

This is a great idea for me to steal for AA. We have all sorts of books and pamhlets, and this would be the perfect way to display them!

Too bad it wont work for every day children's literature.
Too specialized for me I guess.
