Matt’s Display Case

After spending a lot of time watching as many woodworking videos as I could (WoodWorks is still my favorite along with The Wood Whisperer!), I got the itch for woodworking. So, I’ve been spending the past few years slowly building my shop. After many shop cabinets and kitchen cabinets for that matter (I recently finished remodeling my kitchen), I was ready to build something closer to fine furniture. So, when my mother asked me to make a display case for her shot glass collection, I was more than happy to do so.
While basic in its design, I found some really nice curly maple to use along with walnut for the top and accents. It has a mirror in the back and glass in the door. The finish is simply a few coats of wipe-on poly. I think it came out OK, but I still have a lot to learn!
