Re: display panels

That's a good idea. I have a stack of wood in my garage waiting for me to
finish my panels. Mine are 4'x5', and are in sections of 2. They are
constructed out of 2x2". I cut them down the center about 1/2" deep to make
a grove. I then slide in masonite. My original plan was to have these be 6'
tall, and to be in sections of 3, but in order for me to manuver these
around by myself I had to size them down. I LOVE them! I currently have 3
finished (6 panels hinged together in pairs) - I can attach artwork during
class whenever I have a few minutes, so I no longer have to spend hours
after school hanging artwork!
