Simple slot together shelving for display of a Rubik's Cube type puzzle collection.

Prototype: -

  • replacing a simple shelving system made from CD cases
    • too brittle
    • too fiddly
    • hard to clean
  • my first real use of the new A0 laser cutter at the Hackspace
  • using various offcuts from the bulk red acrylic available at the Hackspace
  • picture rail for support
    • profile for the picture-rail on the prototype seems to work OK
  • it looks rather gross - a sort of 70's cheap and nasty!
    • I think it must be a combination of the red acrylic and my overuse of Bézier splines
    • the next version will be a simpler and blockier design
    • also I will be using clear acrylic to make the shelves themselves less obvious

Idea: Making for other people

  • who uses picture rails any more? My house was built in the 1930's!
