I am looking for plans on building a stable for a blow mold nativity scene. It's medium size, not life size, blow molds. Last year I made one out of a pair of pallets and some 2x4s but it wasn't something I could really keep and had to send off to the dump.
I saw a stable last year at Menards but they didn't have it in stock yet. Found one on ebay but it's pricey (not sure what Menards price is anyway) but you can see what I'm talking about. I'd like to make something like this since it looks like it can be folded up.
I was thinking a couple pieces of plywood together with a hinges for the back and roof. Then a pair of front supports locked in place somehow (removeable) to keep it up; it wouldn't need walls. Hold it down / support it from behind with a couple small fence posts. Also thinking I would cut "slats" in the plywood to give the illusion of it being boards together. That and to allow some air to flow through it
Sorry if this is not the best sub forum for this but I didn't see one for something like this. It is wood so I figured close enough. Even a plywood cutout of a stable as a background would work too.
Thanks for any advice.
