I built this small display case for a friend last Christmas to display his collection of playing cards. The case is solid white oak and the shelves fit into slots routed into the sides. There is a slot in each shelf to help hold the cards upright. I used half dado joints in the corners, which were not the best, but they worked. The door frame is pretty thin, and I used a miter joint in each corner and a spline to strengthen it. A simple chamfer eases the edges. A small peg in the door mates with a hole in the case to prevent the door from sagging over time. The back is hardboard with self adhesive oak veneer on it. This worked we and stained fine to match the rest of the cabinet. This is the first piece I’ve actually been paid for!
