These are Shrine Fez Display Cases. I have been working on this design for several years. I came up with this idea back in 1996 and have been refining the outcome every time I make them. It is nothing more than half-laps and dado’s. The First picture shows the finished trio of cases, (as I call them, BG, Before Glass). Two are made of Red Oak and the third (center) is Cherry. The next four photo’s show the half-lap and what each frame looks like before assembly. It’s very meticulous work. Each piece is .750 wide by 10.5 or 9.5 long, depending if it is a cross piece or an upright piece. Each piece is .250 thick and has a dado cut to half it’s thickness to form a half-lap. The last picture is showing the case with a Fez in it. Each case is so detailed that it is hard to explain the steps. Each case has about 6 coats of lacquer on them. Anyways, enjoy.
