The HC - insert wall, part 2

by brae  

Here was my initial dry fit of the removable wall.  I mulled over this design a few days, and changed it slightly for the final.

After measuring multiple times to make sure I had a suitable plan for the removable wall, I marked and cut my insert board using my scroll saw.  Again, I tried to get the cuts as straight as possible, but the trims will disguise any imperfections.

The trims will be cut after I have installed the frame portion and the wallpaper (on order), but this is now the plan.  It seems a better balance than the initial plan.

It will be a larger opening in the end (sorry for the poor quality on this pic, but the camera kept focusing through the opening).

Should work well.  :D

Wow! The trim work reminds me a bit of a craftsman. I love all the right angles.

This is well planned. As I said in my last comment, I could have used this lesson a while back. I have the same problem with my scroll saw and have looked for other options--one with a guide, but haven't found one. I just try to go really slow. Sometimes it works.

You are certainly keeping us in suspense as to what will be behind that panel! Luckily, we know you are a real wizard, on either side of the curtain!

:>> Thanks so much! I actually did prefer the original trim layout for the style I am planning to use, but it didn't offer a good solution in function.

Hi Brae! I am looking carefully at your "removable " wall... I need to make something like this for my Lovely Old Dollhouse.... the bathroom needs a little privacy, but I don't want to obscure the room entirely and I don't want it to be permanent! So I would love to see what the "connecting" method will be... whether it is just a tight fit ... or magnets... or what? My wall needs to be able to slide past the stairs as well, so it gets complicated! :)

Betsy - you might think about making the removable wall in more than one piece if you have limited space. :yes:
