In this video series Rob makes a small display case to house a gift he received from one of our Purple Heart Project scholarship recipients. The case is made from figured Walnut, has a Plexi-Glass top, and a felt-lined Baltic-Birch plywood bottom. The four corners are mitered dovetails, the glass is held in a groove cut in all four pieces, and the bottom sits in a rabbet / rebate. The design can easily be adapted to fit a variety of different shapes and sizes.
