I made this display case as a conversation piece for my office. It started as sort of a joke but the project has rekindled my interest in the craft. My father was a fine furniture craftsman and boy judging by my joinery work I have a LOT to learn. Old Dad made it look SOOO easy. Case is solid pine with 1/4” ply in dados along the back, the front is Lexan (ironically practically unbreakable) I’ve got it slotted into 1/4” dados on the sides and bottom. There is a slot in the top that the front can be slid up and out to adjust the contents. (weapons are all airsoft plastic replicas) I mounted 3/4” dowels as the weapon support through the back with wood screws through large fender washers for support.
I’m pretty happy with the result. I’ve gotten some good chuckles from it.
