Re: [MedievalSawdust] Wooden crates
- I have seen a plan for a simple folding plywood box - the original
was used by travelling blanket salesmen in the 1930's. The sides
hinge alternately inside & outside, and the bottom hinges along one
long side and has a couple of case latches to hold it in place. The
idea was that several could be placed in the car filled with stock,
then collapsed flat as stock was sold.
This is relevant to the SCA as a lot of people like to store their
gear in a number of places at home when not going to events, but need
a convenient way to transport their gear in the car and on site and
want to make the box 'go away' when not actually being used.
I can't find a current link to the plan, but I may have a .jpg or
similar on an old hard drive, so it will take a while to find. The
original plan I saw was on either a Delta or Porter-Cable site, you
had to register to get access. Maybe someone else has a copy of the
plan or can post the link?
