I am now ready to build and construct my on shadow Box illusion. The plans I am using are the Wel's Plans because that's all I can get my hands on. However there is something I would like to do on this illusion. I would like to build a sliding shelf in the back of the illusion instead of having a 1 foot radius board all the way around the illusion. I am not sure how to do this correctly. If anyone can help me out, I would be mostly appreciated. Pm me please.

I have a shelf in the back of mine but it doesn't slide though. Instead, I covered it with black art. It also has two support legs that are also covered in black art. Nobody sees it.
And since you can see under the prop and see it empty before I appear, there is no need to rotate it or "overproove" anything. Just an idea for you but a little black art might be easier than a sliding shelf.

Did you see that?

I don't use a sliding unit. I find it was way to difficult to do and make. I came up with another method with out a beval base. Mine is made of steel and looks dang neat

The Paul Osborne plans are great! & they cover a sliding unit in detail.
I hope this helps
