Recruitment Booth Build/Tutorial (Pacific Regiment)

    I've got to give hats off again to Asgardianhammer . It's people like you that remind me how lazy I am! How I go home after work and just play video games. You're a super active Division Identity Officer, active Regiment Commander, community organizer, scout leader, dad, employed, and you still have time to play video games! I hope you approve of the direction I took with your recruitment booth idea.

    We've had the discussion here and on our regiment facebook group about what we want to see in a recruitment booth here in the Pacific. Now it's time to build it!


    To start off, I'd like to show you a transition of concept sketches.

    With the idea in mind now we needed exact measurements to create a cut list.

    First I had to draw with real 3d effects! By drawing the actual thickness of wood I can see where joints need to be mitered, where dowels or screws or dados need to go, which board sits on which and how does it change the dimensions. I broke down each section and even started the beginning of a supply list on each page.

    Since the bottom box is the cart that holds all the pieces (except the weapons rack which will hang on the outside). I had to write up all the thicknesses of the pieces used to make sure it fits in the box. Plenty of room to spare!

    All in all this took me around 21 hours to doodle.

    Cut List
    *disclaimer* Until we start cutting, the drawings in this post will change
    From these dimensions I used MS Paint to lay out a cut list (only the 3/4" material for now).
    mblackwell1002 is also doing a CAD drawing so we can cut these pieces on CNC.

    PerniciousDuke just pointing out that the mouse for that computer will be on a slanted surface, it would be advisable to use a track pad trackball or find a way to keep it from falling

    Agreed Lieutenant Jaku . It will be in a mortised pocket so it won't fall.

    Thanks brkiker Most of that design is from mblackwell1002 imagination. :)

    I've added the materials list to the first post.
