I was fortunate enough to find a locally owned sporting goods store willing to put my bolt action pens on sale here in Greeley. They asked that I come up with some kind of a display case to show them in the store. This is what I came up with. The frame is salvaged maple, the carcass is poplar with Minwax wb colonial pine stain, finished with Minwax Polycrylic. The 1/4” clear plastic slides out from the top. I flocked the inside in a wine color. Using the Kreg Jig is really handy in working with angles like this. I hope it makes a good 1st impression, I only have one shot at it!
