I’ve been wanting to make a display case for my higher end and personal pen collection for quite a while. I knew in my mind what I wanted, but just kept pushing it to the low priority pile in the shop. Well, with the additional time at home during this pandemic deal, I figured it was time to make it happen. I made the base for the tray from a piece of pine since I fully intended to flock it anyway. The shell is walnut, sanded and sprayed with lacquer. I used a piece of plexiglass for the top, I thought of using real glass, but was afraid if it shattered during construction, I’d get frustrated and put the whole project back in the low priority pile.
I was really happy with how the whole thing turned out, especially the hinge fitment. it took a bit of finessing to get the router set exactly right, but it came together in the end. The pen in the pics is one of my personal favs i’ve made, and is there to show scale. Thanks for looking!
