The Mini Kiosk
A single Mini provides up to 12 square feet of display space, and comes fully assembled and ready to install. The design of the Mini is playful yet robust, and the price is right. We designed this unit for a bike trail project and liked it so much that we decided to offer it for general sale. Like all of our kiosks, the mini features hand-cut, traditional timber framing joinery (mortise and tenon), and naturally rot-resistant timber from northern New England.
Specifications for Standard Mini Kiosks
