DIY Mini Studio
Here’s another Project for you D.I.Y’ers
Of especial interest to those who like me
use eBay a lot. This is not a technical Project
Just a simple construction job
using readily available odds and ends
¼ inch Plywood or MDF for the base,1 in x 1 in PAR (planed all round) or can be just sawn timber Cut to Size, 4 x 24in., 4 x 18in., and 4 x 15 in. Total length required approx. 24 feet for safety. These measurements are not critical and may be varied to suit what you have available
Talk nicely to ‘she who must be obeyed’ for a part of an old white bed sheet or blind for the sides and top. (may be cheaper in the long run to buy the sheet yourself!). Using those on the bed is not recommended!
Paint - matt white Emulsion
Hand saw, Screwdriver, screws, 4 pieces of ¼ in dowel or metal rod. Drill and bits. Glue. Stapler.
This is almost self explanatory.
MDF/plywood base and the 1in x 1in timber to size, drill the 4 holes in the base, repeat for the top to accept the dowel or rod pegs and the sockets for the pegs in the ends of the upright side members. Paint the posts before stapling/glueing
Assemble the pieces as shown in the pictures. Wrap the wall material round the 4 posts and fix either with staples or glue.
For stowage you simply dismantle the walls roll up each side and place in the upturned base of the unit, place the top over this and tie to secure.
Job complete and ready for your next eBay photos.
For illumination I use an old Halogen external light unit, this can be HOT so take reasonable care. It can be sited either over the top, to the side or behind use the inbuilt or exrernal flash if the item is not likely to reflect badly.
