Several years ago I built a display case for my wife’s cup collection. Her collection outgrew the case so I built a bigger one out of black walnut

At first look I thought I was looking at the one I made way back in early 80’s. It’s identical to yours! Nice work!

I think it complements the contents very well. Nice work.

That is quite the coffee cup rack. It would serve as a very nice apothecary if you added drawers, nice work.

That is a very beautiful cup case!
I am sure your wife likes it and, will probably need a larger on soon!


That is something my mother would have loved as she was a collector of country/state coffee cups, small state logo silver spoons, and U.S. state dinner plates.
If that was destined for California the cups would need to be “glued” to the case.
