Posted by Beano Boy on 09 Oct 2021, 05:56

Michael, Remco and Peter. :thumbup: Thanks for commenting.

Gunnar, could easily write a book
or in mighty deed may have already?

Michael,
i worked for the M O D setting up productive lines within the world of heavy engineering.
i walked away from that over 40 years ago. :sst: time fly's

Now many years later i still cut paper card and finger occasionally.
:coffee: Although It is only a hobby tutorial. :eh: Drenched in blood.
:coffee: Stay safe. BB

Pushed against the shoulder of my table.

Image

Super quick right angle grip!

Image

Image

The other side is pushed into gripping place.

Image

A little later after all the pieces were looking the same, the next stage came into play as the tiny shelves were all glued into their upright place.


Image


The last few shelving units from this batch were stuck into required shape, and relative close order with those already made and stacked up with books of all sizes.

i have a few old style books to print out later, including all those below.
It is merely a nostalgia trip on my part. :mrgreen: But fun!

:coffee: So lets go West for a short trip. :cowboy: Great guns in the morning.

Image

Image

The one above i had in 1961. A thing to treasure as it had fantastic art illustrations.

Image

Image 1961

:coffee: Yes out of interest raised for the two that i'd printed out before and turned into tiny books, i managed to find all the Wild West Buffalo Bill Annuals.
The span was 1949 - 1961. i found 14 which i find confusing because the tally in years do not add up correctly. However i myself like a good mystery.


Image

Image

Image

Image

The first story is that one pertaining to the pig, and all these pages will be fresh printed out soon to be included in a tiny book. :eh: Share madness BB.

Image

:eh: So what's next BB ? :coffee:
:coffee: What goes up and down but never moves ?
:cowboy: That's a good one. :eh: It is? :mrgreen: Sure it is Wingnut.
:eh: and bb,was injured on his today. :eh: What?

Be careful out there guys,and help others if you can.BB

Yes Peter,they are all large hard back comic book annuals that were always bought for end of year presents.

i am keeping very busy hobby style working in spite of having had an entire free fall and tumble down my house stairs. :stressed: Only a few cuts and bruised ribs so i'm glad to still be in the land of the living. In spite of this awful accident i am still able to type away a few hours too.
The library now need some type of architraves facades,which i need to design, and yes a stair well too. Answer to my question is. 'Stairs go up and down but never move'. :eh: i guessed it.

What now follows are some rather cluttered in place samples. It takes me an hour to fill up three shelves, so that the books don't fall out when turned upside down.

Finely or not the day dawned upon my dreamy head and every bookcase was emptied out and the starkness of each was glossed over in varnish. It took me eight hours of peaceful relaxing to achieve the end result that i wanted.

Image

All though not finished yet i realise that there are many an avenue
i could take them up and along. BB

This was shot before the tipping out part and the varnish came into play.

:mrgreen: BB, had to trim a picture down to size. the finished result which is seen above. :eh: Y ? asked Wingnut. :sst: it had something upside down.
:eh: A something upside down you say, but what's a something?
:mrgreen: Something that's not right. :eh: I never understand such things as not right upside down somethings. :sst: that's very true,replied the Little Button.
:mrgreen: Lets let BB, explain shall we? Asked Mr Green with a grin full of teeth.
:eh: O, well if we have to.

Image

:coffee: OK, if you look at the photograph above one bookcase far right front, is upside down. :cowboy: It sure is. :sst: and yet the books stayed upright in an upside down position. :mrgreen: That's an oxymoron. :eh: an oxy what ?
:coffee: It is when two opposites meet in the same sentence that makes sense.
:eh: Not to me it don't.
:coffee: i know it is only tea,but a good cuppa is better than a bad one.

Image

:coffee: As i prepare to cut into a new sheet of paper card, the blue print within my noggin will show me just how to form other parts.
:eh: O, my here we go again?

:coffee: Until the next one ,i hope that you will all come visit me pretty soon. BB

As another run of books skirt the unseen walls of such a strange place,
i Thank you Peter. :thumbup: The wedged in books stop them all from falling down upon all those lucky passing heads that might well be below them.

:mrgreen: There are still lots of things to do. :read: And also see.
:sst: very true bookworm, said the little button
:cowboy: Yes there is sure lots more to view. mentioned the Cowboy who for the first time since 1898 washed his feet. :coffee: And most certainly we all had pegs pinching upon our noses as we buried his old socks that Teddy Roosevelt had given him after the battle of San Juan Hill. :oops: A high metal pipe was sunk solid and deep enough upon the burial site, and flame was ignited to burn off the gas fumes. :eh: That's a very tall tale BB. :mrgreen: Well WingNut,it was a very tall hill.
:eh: Eh? :sst: and a very high standing tall metal pipe. :mrgreen: As the wind shifted and high above the first tree in the greenwood burst into flames BB said simply, 'Time for Plan B i think.'

:coffee: i hope you all return for a next time.
Until then take care out there. BB

Thank you guys for tapping upon the Like Button :thumbup: i sure do appreciate it.

Well Gunnar, you are the real deal being a most friendly Librarian with a bounding beautiful lucky dog.https://scontent-lcy1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/ ... e=61A5CE1F

To save space some units will stand back to back to represent the real feel of this invisible place. :eh: Do we do invisible here on the Forum?
i am now working out the infrastructure plans for all those things which will go through, while others will travel up, down and some even side ways too.

:coffee: Gunnar, Antiqurian book shop sounds a good nostalgic place for piling up a few good to middling book memories.

For all visitors, if you would like to pull up a comfy chair by the fireside and do feel free to join our happy band of fellows here upon Benno's Figure Forum.

i hope 2 C every 1 real soon. BB

The Double Sided Archway of Books

A simple affair that will clinker, and clink just like thick plastic Lego bricks when painted. It is amazing just how strong paper card can turn out.
:mrgreen: BB, could put this one on the Honey Well, railway layout. :sst: with thomas and friends passing at full steam ahead under it. :eh: I don't know what they are talking about as i have never seen such a railway.

Image

The structure will be 6 CM wide.
So with the shelves all marked out the start of assembly can now begin. Having never made an archway for little books, i'm once more upon the cutting edge of failure again. :eh: I'mmm.

:coffee: Stay safe and yes help others if you can.

Having bought cheap brushes for gluing up paper card pieces way back in 2016,this one i chose especially from my stash, because it is a flat sided brush and is ideal for this type of work.
The first thing i did was to wash the brush so any loose hairs were removed.

Image

Those above are much taller than those shown before and each one should house well over four hundred of my books.

Image

Before any gluing up could take place i needed to fix tight the brush because they always have loose fittings very likely to drop off into my glue. Of course i have learnt through the years of toy construction to render safe that rather annoying fault.

Image

White waterproof glue was applied to the inside.

Image

The brush handle tip was likewise glued up too.

Image

I let the glue dry tacky to both parts then pushed the stick into its metal housing and the result was instant contact bonding of the two parts. Then i pinched it super tight with just one grip, because there was no need to do more.

Image

Fit enough for use straight away.

Image

The parts were glued up then let go dry tacky and would then be placed upon the under side of the paper card. So when finely cut out the tough facing paper would be upon each side,and ready for scribing out with my trusty ball point Bic Pen.
:eh: Why? :coffee: To create look through avenues of books from all sides. :mrgreen: Well that sounds interesting BB. :sst: interestingly bb,was brought up upon an avenue of pink hawthorn trees and friendly chatting council houses. :mrgreen: Is there some kind of psychology at work here? :eh: You mean is BB mad? :cowboy: No, no, he's just totally different from everybody else.
:eh: Talking houses indeed. :sst: and talking smilies too.

Image

:mrgreen: Plonk ! Plonk ! :thumbup: The old heavy books were then placed to squeeze them tight knit together overnight and avoid them bending during drying out.

:coffee: Until the next one, be sure to stay safe. BB

Image

This shows a few double sided brackets that i'll need front and back of the arches as they are formed. These will provide a good sticking width when gluing up the arch.

Image

With scratch building there is always scrap paper card to use for tiny bits and pieces one needs. :coffee: i throw nothing away. So all the new shelves needed will also be from scrap card. BB
