I am going to be making a very simple shadow box for some old fishing lures I have.
It will be about 3.5 inches deep. Nothing big, just 4 mitered sides, a back set in a rabbet on the back edges of the sides and some glass in front.
My question is about setting the glass in front. I was thinking about cutting a simple inset groove in each side peice about 1/4 inch or so in from the front edges. In that scenario I would have to insert the glass at the time I do the glue up and it would basically be permanent. No problem really but what if the galss were ever to break? Then I am crapola out of luck. Can't really be repaired.
Is there another way to do it that would look good and allow me to replace the galss if it ever became necessary?
