First I would like to say I feel it would be a insult not to credit Popnsons for the display that I built. It was based off the one he built and posted. This is the link. https://www.google.com/url?q=http://lumberjocks.com/projects/65752&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwi0gMrwosLJAhUKOyYKHWHEDigQFggQMAY&client=internal-uds-cse&usg=AFQjCNHHQIJjHijA2S-kluTxEJnVk-kQJg
My Friends girl friend asked me if I could build one for her. She wants to give it to him for Christmas. So I did a internet search to get some Ideas, She wanted one that could hold 12 glasses. (the one I built will hold sixteen)
Long story short I came across Popnsons display. I really liked the way it came out. So when I built mine although there are difference (mine has no door) It was his design that was I used as model to build mine. My self I really liked the way it came out. Even though it is just a shot glass display unit. So far this has to be one of my favorite pieces I have built this year.
for the shelves and sides I took 3/4 stock down to my uncles and had him Plane it down to 1/2 (I don’t own a thickness planer, It’s one of those tools, that I know I need one at some point but right now don’thave an overwhelming need for one to compel me to buy one right now) for the top and bottom i used 3/4 stock and a roman ogee bit. I took some thin strips of 1/2 stock and Mitered them and placed them around the front for decorative looks and to hide the rabbets Redsedona by minwax. 3 coats of Shellac and 3 coats of Poly urethane. and the backing was a left over piece of 3/16 ply I had kicking around. I used a key hole bit for mounting it. and boom its done.
