I didn't make this personally, but it was a gift to me, and I added the glass. I just wanted to show of this neat piece my uncle built me for Christmas a few years ago for my hobby of collecting autographed baseballs.( in case anyone wants the idea.) I did manage a way to add protective glass on there with some clips I got from a glass store, and they put E3 glass on there for me. It comes off easily to change the baseballs.
