Baseboards: Attention!

With the need to load the layout in the back of a van to get it to Scaleforum looming, I have been pressing ahead with the creation of travelling boxes for the boards.

Despite being pretty simple, they do take a long time to make but those for the main visible boards are at least all now complete – and here they are on parade!

  2. While I am aware of traveling boxes as a concept, I have seen only one description of a construction method. Is this the “wrap around” sort that turns two inward facing boards into a box? Are there other approaches one should consider?

  3. Hi Mark,

    A pair of the boards are held together facing each other in the manner you describe – which obviously makes efficient use of space and effort. The two boards (and one side of the casing) can be seen in this earlier post https://highlandmiscellany.com/2019/05/19/boxing-clever/.

    I concluded that the remaining boards were too big or two awkwardly shaped (obviously you need matching pairs to do them as a combined pair) to do this; hence they have a surround box each.

    This means for the six boards I have, there are five boxes.

    • Thanks for the reminder on the previous article. I read through it and there is my commenting on it. I am declaring a senior moment! 🙂 Thanks for the update.
