Once I got started in turning the handles and carving the blades of my letter openers with a draw knife, well…I had more than I knew what to do with. So I decided that I would build a carrying case that would show them off(I had high hopes of selling them). This is the case I designed. It has glass on both sides and both sides open(notice the dual latches on top). I dovetailed the center partitions into the side of the case using sliding dovetails. The only shortcoming of my design was over come by the strip of wood in front of the letter openers. It puts pressure against them so the will stay in there respective grooves. I’ve sold only two and given away several for presents. I guess email has made these jewels obsolete. They are made from birch, cherry,cedar, oak and some spalted woods.
