Customer wanted display cases for his metal army men from the 30’s and 40’s (pretty valuable i guess).
Had 3 decent pieces of glass laying around the shop, made 3 identical cabinets. All from self milled rough sawn cherry. Finish thickness is 1”. Basic cabinet construction, dovetails, rabbited back, shelf dados. The backs and shelves are just 1/4” ply, but to hide the edge and stiffen em up I made runners that sit nice in the dado.
Finish is brushed/rubbed on boiled linseed oil – for natural look..
Lids are mortised and tennoned. They only fastners used on these babies will be the screws that hold them on the wall.
