I had a lady from Massachusetts E-Mail me about three weeks ago to tell me that she had seen the golf ball display case on my website and it was almost exactly like one that she had purchased a few years back for her son to display his Lego mini fugures in. What she had purchased was a golf ball display case where she had turned the case upside down so that, what she called the golf ball “indents”, would be on the bottom allowing her to use the case for her purpose.
As their collection gradually grew to the point where they had filled the case, she went on-line and attempted to buy antother case from where she had purchased the first one. She quickly found out that this original supplier/builder had went out of business. This prompted her to searching the internet for another supplier when she came upon the project story from my website where I had built a similar golf ball display case. She then e-mailed me to see if I sold these cases. I told her that I had not in the past but might consider building her one.
One thing led to another and I told her I would make her one. She needed to have it more than twice the size of my golf ball display case. After arriving at a price, I began this project, completed it and shipped it to her. After receiving it, she placed her and her son’s lego mini figures in it and sent me back two photos with the figures on display in the case.
I don’t have any buiild process article of this project on my website as is usual with my project posts because I didn’t take but a couple of pictures near completion of the case, but you should get somewhat of an idea from the photos that I did take and posted here.
The project was kind of time consuming cutting all the dados in the interior vertical and horizontal dividers, but I still had fun doing the project. Anyone with questions, feel free to contact me.
