My uncle is a HUGE collector of autographed sports memorabilia. He recently came to me and requested some shadow boxes for some jerseys he just accquired. I made three. 1×3 Select Pine for the frame with 1/4” birch hardwood plywood for the backs. Some hanging hardware on the back with a sheet of 3/32” lexan made this project a nice sat/sun project. The hangers were made of the same lexan but were cut on the bandsaw. I think I will make a nice template out of some hardboard and then use the router with a flush-trim bit to make the future hangers (would seem to be quicker that way). The joints were just but joints with a little glue and some 2” woodscrews with plugs allowed this project to roll out the shop fairly quickly once started.

He lives about 60 miles away so I left the protective film on the lexan for transportation. I painted them black because that was what he requested. All in all not a bad project for a weekend.
