I finally finished the display case for my Son & Daughter-in-law.
Made from 3/4” Red Oak, Stained is Hickory, followed by 3 coats of poly.
The picture looks lighter than it actually is, but it’s a cell phone picture.
A lot of fun to make and I learned a lot from it; like matching dados for the shelves, and building the moulding myself. Plus I have never made a pediment before, so that was special!
I added the pediment because otherwise it would look too much like a box so I think this touch really makes it stand out.
The glass for the door was added just before shipping and is now safe at the kids house they say.
And they loved it, which was the number one important part for me.
