First project on my new Griz 1023 table saw. I’ve had this project in mind for 6 months while I saved for the saw. Its purpose is pretty simple; I got a bunch of cool baseball cards that live in a box in my closet. Now they are on display in my office.

Learned a lot on this project, and put some mileage on my new saw.

Project:

3/4” Pine frame (next time OAK).
3/4” Oak trim for front
1/2” Oak for shelves
1/4” Ply back
1/4” Plexiglass

Finish:

ZAR stain
3 coats of arm r seal

-- Dust Collection @my house: roll all your power tools outside, cut, roll everything back inside, hope for rain.

Nice work! Looks good! Your display case should last for a long long time with those nice tight box joints!
