Got me a whole bunch of walnut last year for next to nothing so this is the first bigger project I used it on. Most of it is the sap wood very light but the figure is amazing kind of like quilted maple’ish. The side HD symbols are maple and the top HD is purple heart and lacewood.

Anyway my buddy painted my bike last year and I wanted to make him something. (I did a post about it if you want to see it) Him and his wife have literally 100’s of shot glasses so I thought to make a display case for some of the Harley ones since they also ride.

I added some gun steel grey hammered glass mirror to the back and hammered glass shelves to brighten it up, I forgot about the mirror reflecting the dado to make it seem even deeper then it was, oh well next time I’ll remember.

Anyway hope ya like it, I’m giving it to him and his wife tomorrow, I’ll let ya know if they like it, hope so.

Thanks all, it was a fun build. I forgot to mention the wood had some pretty bad twist to it, so it was a challenge getting everything straight.

Again thanks so much for the comments you are all such kewl folks to hang with. Even if it is just in the digital world of the internet LOL One of these days we need to have a LJ convention so we can all meet up.

Oh man, that’s awesome Doug!! I love all the woodworking, and the glass work just tops it off! Love the design, and that walnut is spectacular. I just found a board with that kind of quilting in it too, looks 3D almost.
