Museum-Style Display Case

A few months ago, Schenk’s wife Lisa asked me if I could make a new display case for some of the fancier geological specimens she’s found throughout the years.  The style would be the slant-top kind found in museums or historical societies.  Yeah, I can do that.

Box is made with birch ply I had leftover from another project.  The ‘glass’ is actually a sheet of plexiglass, which is a lot lighter (and easier to work with; god I hate working with glass).

Like most wood projects, it looked pretty ‘meh’ when it was done, but Lisa applied some stain, and when stocked with geological and biological treasures, it came out lookin’ pretty damn good.

More Nurse Glasses

After the popularity of the first set of glasses I gave away, I trolled the internet for more funny ideas.  I found a few more, drafted them up, then went to Dollar Tree and picked out a variety of glasses.

A trip through the rotary engraver in the laser cutter, a scrub with a brillo pad to remove any roughness on the engraved area, and they came out lookin’ good.
