A friend wanted a trophy shelf for his son’s athletic awards. The boy is a football fan of the University of Tennessee, so choosing the color scheme and jersey name plate was easy. The father has the son’s name tattooed down his forearm in a tribal font that was copied along lower middle upright. The side shelves are adjustable. The case is 6’ long x 4’ high.

Except for the UT end zone “checkerboard” layout, it was a fun project.

Thanks a1Jim. When people know that you make wooden things, they must think that you are also a designer. My friend said make something to get the kid’s trophys off the floor. When asking for more direction, he just said anything I build, will be fine. I did ponder cinder blocks and 2×6’s, but alas the challenge of adding some elements to a simple shelf case and making it unique. I used french cleats as the mounting system, one behind the name plate and the other under the case bottom.

This is the neatest display arrangement for trophies and plaques! I like that the shelves are adjustable! Did you get the wood and cut it how deep you wanted it, and put the holes in it for the shelves? Do you make these items and ship or do you share creative tips?
