I’ve been getting into making hats for my customers and for my shop, and I needed to figure out a better way to display them. This is the first attempt (well, first five… starting from the bottom)
This started as a Universal Box with (s) stackable top and bottom from the festi.info/boxes.py generator. I designed it to be cut from 6mm bb ply, but I keep having hidden knot issues with that material, and this was no different. Instead of redesigning it, I decided to cut it from 3mm bb ply (which almost always works great for me), which had the unexpected advantage of allowing me to do my glue-up on the inner layer, and hide all my stray glue globs with the outer layer.
I think the next step will be a piece that goes across the front of the shelf and which locks two units together, as my little tear-drop interconnects just kind of sit there and don’t work to lock the units square to each other.
