This is a thirty-five foot Oak trophy case built for a local high school. Obviously way too big for my home shop so I built it at the school district shop.

Looks great. Did they give you a First Place Trophy to honor your work?

This is made up of fourteen sections each 30” wide. It had to fit between two doorways that go into the gym. The request was 8’ tall, double doors, and adjustable shelves. The Alumni Association gave the money for the materials and the School District paid my wages for the labor. Materials cost a little over $7,000.00,
my wages were a whole lot less.

bargain…as a fellow district “employee” clearly your labor was a bargain because this is magnificent…I wonder what it would cost to create onthe open market…GO UNION (sorry no poloitics at LJ’s)....great job is my point…sounds like a great job where they are giiving you these wonderful projects—-and maybe these fun jobs will increase as your skill gets around the district and community…Do you think they will let me build tables in my district if I increase my woodworking skills??? SOme days it would sure beat teaching history!!!

Thank you,
I just got another work order to build 13 more matching cases for the same High School.
The first ones cost a little over $7,000.00 in materials. The tempered glass alone was $2,000.00.
From the commercial furniture suppliers, the cost would have been between $20,000.00 – $25,000.00.
I have received a lot more requests for work from my home shop, but a lot of people want custom work at Sauder prices. I still love woodworking anyway.
