Display Case

I started on this a while back stopped and started it back in the last couple of weeks.The build is out of Red Oak and invariably some White Oak found it's way in the build my fault not paying attention to what I was actually grabbing but a good thing!The mistake made me think for the next one I build to go white oak(maybe maple) for the lid,doors and panels with the red oak for the frame.I use stains but the more I build the more I like to use wood already the color desired.The case has five selves counting the base and which 4 will be glass the doors and top will be plexi.

What sort of joinery is in use? The corners, and the rails.

Looks good

Unlike my last project that was all mortise tenon this was all biscuit and glue no metal except brads on the corner(s) of doors.The pic is the mortise tenon HuntBoard designed by Garrett Hack I picked that project to teach myself got about 100hrs in that build did pieces 2/3 times.

Why are you using Plexi on the top? In the long run it will tend to get scratched and marred. Glass would hold up much better?

George I opted for the plexi to keep the lid lite and the location in the shop is a zero traffic area mainly it's my man-cave area.It will be displaying...my other childhood hobby.
