A problem was pointed out by Neil (Dai Sensei) in having to many large diameter pens. He wasn't wrong and so I set about making a new display case.
Timber for the sides was Tassie Oak 35mm deep x 12mm thick, thanks to David Dicker for that Oak.
A sheet of ply thanks to Robo from Cumberland Woodies for that, which came from some old crates he had.
Some brass coated piano hinge I had had for years.
I or i should say Sue did purchased some nice looking catches. I have brass corners to get yet they'll come from McJings.
Leather for the handles thanks to Tony Tuma, hope your smiling down on me old mate.
Sue spent a few days making the new interior, Pene Velvet, mounted on old real estate signs with a layer of felt under.
This is the first box I have made in many years.
Glue up and clamped.
Checking square and matching prior pre-fit of hinge.
All assembled just need to get the brass corners.
