A friend teaches – among other things – a course in film appreciation at the local community college. Each course presents 15 films, and he wanted a case which would hold two courses. This would be my first commission, the compensation for which was to be breakfast at our favorite breakfast joint in town.

As it happened, another friend in the construction bus. had gifted me a load of mahogany flooring which, for whatever reason was unsuitable for the job he was working on and now was twisted and bowed. I’d experimented with the material on a couple of shop projects, and was pretty sure it would work for this one. The first step then was to move the raw wood into usable boards.

a little jointing, some dovetails, and a spot of inlay later, and here’s the result. The course on Hitchcock was fantastic, and I’m looking forward to the course on Film Noire.

Looks like it’s a nice case for holding a bunch of movies, Doug. Well done!

Looks good.

My wife has been asking me to make something to store our movie collection. Thank you for a concept that it can be done with class.
