Here is the finished result of my latest project. It was a NCO sword display case for my last Platoon SGT I had as a Platoon Leader in the Army. It was a big undertaking for me since it was the first time I used a lot of new techniques and I didn’t have any plans to try to go off. I was able to build it using only my cordless drill, palm sander, miter saw, and router. I bought my first router table to help cut the groves for the glass in the door. Fitting the lock and routing its catch. If you look closely at the bottom, you can see that I designed a removable challenge coin rack that sits in the bottom, under the sword. The only thing that I didn’t get around to was adding an engraved plate at the top.
Since finishing this project I have invested in an air compressor and several nailers to make life much easier. Hopefully, I can also get a table saw soon. I’ll also need to remember to take better photos throughout my next build.
