Just a little display case I designed and build for a buddy to display his TAE KWON DO belts .
I ask him about a design motive and the answer was ,oh what ever just make something .
Wanting to give it a little Asian flavour I made some square plugs for the screw holes and flared the walnut top which is removable and held in place with screws from the top to insert the glass panel ,keeping it very simple .
It’s Unfinished birch and walnut which he gave me with a velvet cloth back on MDF .

This will definitely hold and display those belts and awards nicely. Super nice build.

That’s a nice design touch, Pine.

Looks very good. I especially like the way you flared the top.

Great design and construction, but I’m a little confused as to whether the belts are supposed to be hung from a rod at the top or stacked in the frame. Wish I had made something like this a long time ago, before my collection of belts got packed away and probably lost.
