Made these Hockey Puck Display Cabinets for a Step-Son who was recently inducted into the Canadian Hockey Hall of Fame as a Trainer of the Year at an Ontario Hockey Association awards ceremony in Toronto.

He has an extensive collection of Pucks from his career in Hockey and asked if I could make him a case to hold and display them. He has about 50 and these 2 cabinets will hold 60 so he has room to add to his collection.

Cabinets are made from some very old cherry I’ve been hoarding, waiting for the right project to come along. Case and trim molding are 3/4”, the puck holders are 1/4” and the back is 3mm Birch Ply. Made French Cleats and screwed them to the back to hold the cases to his walls.

Finish is Waterlox—medium sheen—3 coats. I think I’ll buy the next can in satin sheen..

Answer to herbritchie…... I used a 3” forstner bit to cut the holes in 1/4” thick by 4” wide cherry and then ripped it down the middle. There is a 1/4” x 1” reinforcement glued to the back of each rack.
