Just had to share this one. I'm pretty happy with they way this "LEGO display" it turned out. And it's modular so you can add pieces as the collection grows.
I used a laser cutter, but I'm sure you can come up with a alternative to build one if you don't have access to a cutter.
- 4mm MDF
- Spray paint
The shelves I made are about 35x30 cm (14x12 inches). Cut guides are attached in Illustrator and PDF format,
Step 1: Cut and Assemble
The boards were cut using a laser cutter, I added some wood glue when attaching the shelve.
But I drew the square holes at 3,9mm while the MDF is 4mm wide makes for a fit very tight. (since the laser does cut away some material)
Step 2: Prime and Paint
I used a primer before applying the color, MDF tends to "eat" a lot of paint on the sides of the sheets.
Step 3: Mount on Wall
I placed the shelves on the floor before mounting to get and idea of how far apart they should be.
Step 4: Fill the Shelves With LEGO Figures
So far I have just put the figures on 2*x plates or various sizes. They are stable just standing there, but they a quite easy to knock down when the kids move them up and down. So I'll probably get some long 2*x plates in dark grey and glue those (not the figures) to the shelves.
...even if that may be death sin in the lego religion. =/
Step 5: Stand Back and Admire
Stand back and admire while there is still some figures left on the selves, because they do look tempting to take down and play with when they're all lined up like that. :)
Thanks for "watching", do share if you make one!
