Sorry about the picture, apparantly I’m not a photographer. I made this for a friend’s “man room.” He laid out his favorite beer bottle caps inside. It was my first time using Butternut, and I really liked working with it.
Now his wife wants one to put sea shells in

That is a very cool display case. Nice joinery.

Looks great! (...but beer bottle caps? Your skill needs to be praised of more worthy things besides beer bottle cap!)

This is a great piece: functional, clean lines, classic mortise and tenor joinery, and a beautiful wood. Furthermore, you are very generous if you actually gave this away!

No no, a display table that nice HAS to have worthy contents to display. I think bottle caps are the obvious choice.
