Building Large Props with Storage in Mind
One of the most common questions I am asked is where do I store all this huge stuff? Answer: I design it to break down to fit in a small space. I learned this lesson only after building several really big pieces that wouldn't break down and running out of storage space. I took these pix today to share some experience and encourage folks to make some bigger pieces. The hearse breaks down into flat panels, and assembles easily with only 10 bolts...a one person operation.
My next lesson learned...when a wheel says "for decorative purposes only"...you better believe it! I broke one wheel today setting this up in my front yard. I will reinforce it and reinstall, but will no longer use them for more than holding the hearse up.
