    Display case finished!

    Painted it up, with a marble black on white. Upholstered it with batting and felt. I love it.

    Because lots of it was! Lol its just MDF, id like to be able to buy birdseye or burl, but that would be quite alot of money. For 60 bucks worth of wood, cloth, ect. It does what i wanted.

    Cool that you made your own. It might be nice to put a small lock on it for minimal safekeeping.

    Would I be rude if I said that I don't like the paintjob and that you could have gone for a better design overall ? Maybe less wood on the doors and more glass ? :s Even better, metal frames ?

    I'd bet the paint job looks better in person! Camera flashes often distort how things look in real life...

    Thanks guys, it was just a fun weekend project. I was suppose to drop a big oak tree, couldnt get the lift, so i just made this haha.

    No, not rude atall. I agree it could have been better, i would had to have used hardwood to make the door trim more narrow. As i said, it is only mdf, so strips 4ft long would have made for a torsion happy door. To make them from steel that long id have to use around 1/4 angle iron, unfortunatly i dont own a plasma cutter. :(.

    Ultimately, i would have prefered a hardwood, but im a eng. Student.......so im always trying to be easy on my wallet.

    With that said, youre welcome to the Cad files, i can email them to you as a pdf. You can use a nice hardwood, narrow the trim. Just rip it more narrow with the saw, at 45° it will still miter the same size. Id like to see it, would be very nice.

    Thanks

    Cody
