I am looking for a very simple design (searched Free Designs to no avail) ~ it’s a rectangle or small arched shape with a slot to glue onto the back of a 4x6 piece of 1/8" baltic birch. I believe it’s a triangle piece(?) that fits into the slot to make the square stand up.
The tough part about your design is that there’s not a lot to hold the triangle in there. You’d probably need at least 2 layers on the glued base, and a little “hook” on the triangle piece so it could lock into place.
Would an easel-type stand work for you? Might be simpler to pull off, and lots to choose from:
Here is a back piece I made in the past. It allows the triangle piece to rotate (almost) flat or stick out at 90°. I created it in Inkscape. You may be able to modify this for your use?
Edit: I was using .120" material.
@eflyguy and @evansd2 An easel won’t work for this project because I need something invisible from the front, & as minimal/flat as possible (so that it could lay flat and be mailed in an envelope). But thank you! I appreciate the help.
I swear I’ve seen this…when my migraine’s over I’ll try to design/make it.
This is very close to what I’m thinking of. Thanks! Do you happen to have a photo of what it looks like in use/assembled? It may be a little more complicated than what I need, but this is a great design!
I really don’t care enough to be worried about it, but it’s why I’ll never post designs “for sale”. The last modified date of the file on my laptop is Dec 2017, which is right around the time I got my GF…
It’s not that unique a concept. The first one I saw here was posted by a girl who was in school for design/architecture at a college I believe was on the east coast. She pops back on once in a long while but her name escapes me now. It’ll likely come to me in the middle of the night though. The description might be enough for @rpegg though because his memory is more real-time than mine
