Well, this is my first attempt at “wood working” since 7th grade shop class. I received a table saw for Christmas last year and I needed a project to learn how to use it. I wanted a black case to display one of my high school hockey jerseys. Eventually plan to make a second for my college jersey. I hung it on the garage wall because I didn’t consult my wife before I started on the project and that is the only place “in the house” she would allow it. Oh well, I’m out there a lot anyways. Since I planned on painting it and the likelihood that I would screw up a bit (i.e. needed some cheap material to learn with), I just used 3/4” MDF. Glass is just standard double thick. Jersey is sewn on (another first for me) to black velveteen fabric, foam core (the stuff used for picture frame mat), and held in with 1/4” hardboard. Turned out kind of heavy, so it is hung with a metal french cleat. Overall size is about 40”x36”.
