Tretorn Backyard Photo Booth

Had a fun project come across our worktable the other day. Our friends at Tretorn had a special request for us… build an 8ft x 8ft “photo booth” for display in the Tretorn Backyard during the Newport Folk Festival at Fort Adams in Newport, RI. Tretorn wanted something where concert goers could stand behind a frame/facade which made it look like they were wearing Tretorn shoes and then take photos to share on Instagram etc. So this meant it had to be strong enough for people to stand/lean on and be easily broken down/set up for transport to location etc. Oh, and it also had to look good…

After a lot of planning, a trip to the hardware store and some fun putting shoes through the table saw… we ended up with what you see below.

It seemed to be a big hit in the Tretorn Backyard (we even got in on the action ourselves) and more importantly it didn’t fall apart!

Thanks for the fun project Tretorn!
