Another ‘combined’ project with my LJ buddy terryR. Case is American Chestnut salvaged from a barn demo. Bats and cave scene are from Kay Co. chert, wherever that is….terry? Nothing special in the construction, maybe the splined mitered corners. Splines are walnut. I use only 1/4” safety glass in all my cases. Didn’t realilze this one was from ‘08…, how time flies! Again, I can see there is an art of taking pics of projects. The black felt in this one acted like a mirror.

-- cut that out!
