New project , LB's display room
« on: February 10, 2015, 12:44:51 PM »
Well fellow members , the time is slowly drawing in for myself to begin work on a long awaited project ,my display room

This will begin a week before Easter as i have the plasterer booked in the following weekend .

i have designed the display cupboards and drawn up  scale drawings and these have been passed by "she who matters "  ;)

I will get some pictures of the empty room before we start work  so  you can follow whats going on as well , thats if you are so inclined ?

Being a carpenter/joiner  the actual procedure of such a task is not daunting at all ,just damm expensive ,  the units will be made up using MDF (MEDIUM DENSITY FIBREBOARD)  this will help in the decorating stage ,as it gives a great smooth  surface to paint

So wish me well , and ill keep you all updated as when it so requires

Right on.  Can't wait to see what you come up with for a display.  Let me know if you need any decals or vinyl...

HOLD EVERYTHING !!!!!!!!!!   i have had a change of plan !!   

I think there may be an oppurtunity to gain some more valuable drawer space !!   ill just have to ammend the plan

What i intend to do is raise the PLINTH to about 160mm which will allow me to intergrate 2 more shallow'ish depth drawers in that space , which i hope will be able to accomodate a shearling jacket in each , as hanging them up on a hangar is a deffinate no no !! 

thoughts ???

Thoughts ?  Think BIG.

Forget the drawer space, build a war museum wing on the house.  ;)

Today i have have sourced from my local glazier , a really slick sliding door track for the glass fronted part of the display unit!

It entails a brushed chrome ,double channel track which houses very small rollers in it , which makes for a smooth sliding glass door

Really getting itchy fingers now !! cant wait to get started on this ,  roll on Easter !!!    ;D

Still unsure of a paint scheme for the unit ??  do i go OD ?   and ideas fellow members ???
