Love it. I made something very close to that for my G-dad (who was a paratrooper in WWII) and I had an idea to put a flag on top but my father thought it would be too big for my G-dad’s travel trailer. How do you access your case to add or remove things. Mine had a removable top located with dowels and the backs slid out of dados.
You did such a great job here and God bless your G-dad for all he did for us.

Drew, thanks for commenting. My case is very simple. Made of Red Oak with Oak back which is easily removed with screws. I am very interested in your technique as it sounds much more professional.

Hey Johnny, My case construction has 4 uprights, two being the outsides. in each upright I ran a narrow dado down the legnth to accomodate a peg board wrapped with felt. This made them easy to remove with the top off. In the center the top section removes the same as the two sides but the center and bottom are just rabbited in so if we have to remove it with the back off we could. The back is held in place with glazing tips similiar to what you would use on a pic frame. The top is located in each upright with dowels and is fully removable. In the pic you can see we didn’t push it all the way down. Click for details
