Continuing the quest to kill off a couple tubs of offcuts, here is a shadowbox to hold a small collection of vintage lighters and tape measures.

Approximately 30×14 x 1.75”, Cherry except for the back which is cherry and walnut.

One single dovetail on each corner to hold the 1/2” sides together, the 1/4” back sits in a rabbet, the 1/4” dividers are all a friction fit and two keyholes routed in back for hanging.

A cool fitted display for your collection. Good job. I like the collection of old tape measures. Some of those lighters I haven’t seen in 50 years.

Great utilization of your offcuts (too nice to call them scraps). And a cool collection as well.

I like this very much and it’s a great way to present a collection of small items.
