Portable Display Panels for a Cabinet Showroom
I have a small showroom area in which I would like to put some small vignettes of various styles of work I do. I also would like these to be portable for setup at home shows. Does anyone have ideas or pictures of a light weight wall system to hang the upper on as well as fasten the base to that is sturdy yet easy to dismantle?
This is a common set up for trade show exhibit displays or theatrical props. Do not get the panels over 4' wide for handling and weight. Keep the edges straight to keep the joint to a minimum, but it will be visible but don't worry about it, it's a traveling circus show not a museum. Your moldings can be pre-applied too, just butt them neatly at the panel joints or you can add and remove them at the show if you want to take that time and expense to have full lengths, but they're props to display the product you are showing. I ran a shop that built many of these for the biggest cabinet producer for their shows, it will work.
From contributor H:
I did the over a ten year period and found it was a pain to keep the wall sections stored and equally a pain to fabricate. We finally made the upper cabinets which sit on a roll top section on the counter surface. No walls needed. The units I have are five feet long but shorter would be easier to move.
