Another Christmas present done !
This is a belt display cabinet for my oldest grandson to keep his TAE KWON DO belts in as he rises through the ranks .
The cabinet is made from teak which I cut out of some flooring ,it has a lot of sapwood and knots which I think worked well with the style of this . I assembled the cabinet with CA glue but also used screws on each joint since the glue test sample did not seem very strong because of the oily nature of the teak .
The back is painted birch ply and the front panel is Plexiglas for safety sake .
The glass can be removes by detaching the bottom of the cabinet which is held in place by two screws and the cabinet is hung by a French cleat .
The finish is bees wax mixture .

Nice cabinet Kiefer. When he gets that final belt to fill that cabinet he should be able to protect you pretty well.
