Hey everyone. With Christmas around the corner I am lining up some projects. I have a request from my cousin for one of these 30-baseball display cases. She is collecting one ball from each park when she visits.

Anyone built one of these before? I can’t seem to find plans online. Angles are simple and It’s probably not too hard to knock-off with a bit of paper and pencil but I thought I would ask here. Toss me some ideas. i see all sorts of creative masterpieces on LJs!

Simply layout the baseballs in the pattern shown. Add 1/4” between balls in the horizontal direction; 1” in the vertical direction; Add 1/2” for wood and shelf thickness and you have the external dimensions of the case. It looks like the front is hinged at the top, with a locking device at the bottom. Each shelf would have a shallow dimple to hold the balls in the viewing position. 1/8” window glass for the front. The back would be 1/4” thick plywood
