Here is a display case that was commissioned by one of my most important clients (my son), and at the request of the rest of my families feet that kept stepping on LEGO pieces.
This is a purpleheart and Oak shelving/display unit for LEGO miniature figures (in LEGO speak, that’s “minifig”).
Bought 10”x10” LEGO plates (same as used for the earlier tray posting) and cut them into strips on the band saw. Mortise with router and then chisel corners.
NOTE: I used a thin application of gorilla glue since the bottom of the plates were not flat and that glue expands. The glue still squeezed out over time from the LEGO flooring and it took as much time to remove that squeeze out as it did to make the case! Live and learn…next time, using CA glue or whatever you fine Lumberjocks recommend.
Son likes to be able to remove a single row with minifigs from a specific set to go play with them, and the display case works because HE PUTS THEM BACK! VICTORY!
Thanks for looking.
