Having made my first (and last) pocket knife from a kit, I wanted to display it.
Display box I came up with is ~6 X 3.5 X 1.5 with a sliding clear cover. Wood is recycled oak barnwood (dark lines are discoloration caused by weathering too deep to remove).
Box was designed to incorporate a sliding clear cover that is removable from the side. Grooves for the clear cover were extended out the side where I cut in a finger recess to grasp the cover. Side slot was cut at the same position as the splines which tends to hide it.
Knife is held in place with a couple magnets glued to the base. Stand is made off a left over from the frame. Splines are made from mineral stained poplar. Finish is natural Danish oil.
