We made this display case for a local pocket knife retailer. This case will be taken to flea markets to showcase their knives. Its a wonderful way to show the knives in a safe manner. We have a special place in our heart for small businesses, so we were excited to work on this project.
Ian measuring out the frames.. Measure twice, cut once!
The display boxes are made from simple pine. We know of people who say pine is no good because its a soft wood and not a hard wood. Honestly as long as the material used on the project works well and serves its purpose there is no reason why it shouldn’t be used other than personal preference. For this application we needed something light and sturdy, something that looked good but didn’t need the strength of a bank vault. Long story short, Pine is Fine!
Wishing you sawdust and wood glue,
