Refreshment stand Sss
« on: October 23, 2013, 04:00:08 PM »
Here is a set of sketches for scratch building a cute little refreshment stand (my own design). It would look great in a city park, town square, baseball diamond, or circus. Footprint is only 1” x 1” and is an easy build.
Choice of materials is up to you. It can be done in wood but sketches are based on styrene thicknesses. If you use another material adjust dimensions accordingly. I gave it a patriotic flair with red, white and blue, but you can paint as desired. For gluing styrene parts I recommend a plastic solvent type glue. Doors can be installed in an open or closed position, and to make them movable, use fine weave bridal veil material for hinges.

The building directions are in the sketches, and to make your build easier you can enlarge them to full size and print them out. Read directions in assembly sketches before cutting out parts as you may want to change some sizes or cut fewer, or additional, openings.

Included sketches are: Overview sketches, Parts templates,  Assembly sketches,  and PDF.

To print the part templates actual size, use the PDF. Select best printer quality, set PDF zoom to 100%, and page scaling to "none" or actual size. Check your printed page to see that 3" lines are exactly 3" long. Once you have template printed, you can cut with scissors (leave a 1/8" border) and arrange on your material for maximum sheet usage. Part templates for siding are a mirror image, when needed, so that you can cut walls with siding side down (easier to cut). Be sure siding grooves are oriented correctly. Use rubber cement or Krylon Easy Tack Repositionable Adhesive to glue paper templates to your material and then just cut on lines. No measuring ! Paper comes off easily.

Cut out parts carefully using a SERB (Single Edge Razor Blade) and straight edge, then follow assembly sketch directions.

NOTE: When I completed this set, I realized that posts look a little thick. You may want to do them from 1/16” stock instead of 1/8".
