My daughters Karate teacher had an old rinky-dink belt rack that held his belts with a zip-tie. It was exposed to dust and open air. For an 8 Degree Master Kenpo instructor, I’m sure his belts are of little concern to him. It’s his students that matter most. So I did him a favor and made this box for free! It’s made of select pine from Lowe’s. Each piece of wood was hand picked to give the best grain detail. I stained it with a red mahogany and used 3 layers of poly clear coat, lightly sanding in between coats. I used plexy instead of glass and told him he can always change it if he likes. The top is screwed in with 4 screws to allow him to slide the glass up to insert future belts. He was very surprised and very happy to see that his belts are now taken care of and worthy of display. And of course a bunch of Mom’s were asking where they can get one for their child.

Nice display cabinet and looks like you might have to make some more.

I sure do Bob! Man do I miss Melbourne! Awesome place and you know I definitely had to have me one of the BEST Vanilla Slices Australia had to offer down in the Mornington Peninsula.

I live 70 odd miles North of Melbourne but sure is a good place to visit. Lots of great vanilla slices to be had down under. I served 22 years in the Australian Navy but unfortunately never got to the states. All the best
with your career and wood working.
