Ah don’t mind this project guys/gals its just a 2 second whip up as you can tell. Heres a description just for the sake of it though. It is the display case of anything that had to do with my major brain surgery event that happened back in october I just made it because it made my life pull a complete 180 and I never want to forget anything about it. Its made out of pine which is stained mission oak colour but the way i put it together and cut the wood was to make it look very rustic. I didn’t sand it or finish it at all so you can see and feel the rough texture of it and I even stabbed a few nail holes into it to antique it a bit. Like I said just a two second project for an important event and now that I made it my wife wants me to make a whole new set of funiture and frames for our living room rustic looking so I’ll be busy.

Hi Mark,
Nice case!
I am also going to make a case for myself to never forget the life changing event I went through.
I kept a couple of things from the event that will be placed into the case.
Best wishes and I hope you are back to full shop action soon.
