Very nice case! What does it hold? Also what kind of router bit did you use to get the inside frame profile?

Really nice looking display cabinet. I like the configuration of the shelves, was it meant to hold something specific? Also very happy to hear of another daughter in the shop building things for her own use and for others as well.

The router is the ‘old’ Bosch 1617E mounted in a small Porter Cable table. It’s difficult to tell from the photo, but there are splines in the corners of the door. I love the router, very comfortable when hand held.

The case is for my daughter so I asked her to sketch out where she wanted the shelves. I should have kept an eye on her and coached her…. When I returned and saw how many crazy cubbies she had created I thought I was in serious trouble! I did all the dado 1/4” at one sitting with just a standard 1/8” blade and a 1/8” calibration block. I would run it over the blade, pull miter gauge back and use the block as an offset…
