Road boxes and tables

these sketchs for a request I have had about the  transportation of my show
I have built three that give me 36 feet of table space  that can be used in
four foot increments   I can fit 3 of these in  full size van  or could fit 4 in a 10 ft trailer
The first box was built about 30 years ago  and they only repare was putting the stronger
 base under it the first one had 2x4 all around  now there are 2x6 on each end and  the
2x4 on the sides  they were built to go thru a standard commercial door   so your outside demention
should not exceed that and I allow a 1/2 inch for added clearance 
a added note the tables are about 4 ft high so a bit high for little kids but it adds a bit
more security from little hands 
I have also hinged the top of the boxes for easier loading and unloading  and use a wooden
brace to hold the top open in the load in or load out operations

folding chairs

there were three pins that were used to hold it together and to fold one at the front of the seat one at the legs of the chair and one about a 1/4 of the way back from the seat the piece on the side is how they cut all the pieces from one piece of wood and the numbers correspond to the parts

Have fun think it would have to be redrawn to scale but think the pattern is great

LA 01 Template for seat wagon box

I have used card stock to make the boxes in HO and 1/4 inch    cutting on the solid lines  folding on the dotted lines     the tabs on the bottom can be used to close the  back end of the wagon or  make doors
I also leave another tab on the right side  that glues to the tab on the left side   
then  line the out side with wood channel
