    @11KBP: Thanks. I'll be sure to post some photos when I fill the case. Next, I need to find some foam or similar material to cover the bottom.
    @Hoss: Thanks. I'd like to see yours when you get it finished as well. Any ideas on what you're going to make?

      Very nice case jmack.
    Sometime in the future when you have artifacts in the case I would
    like to see how your led lights light it up on the inside.

    Thanks guys. I really like the idea of making it into a coffee table display case; I hadn't thought of that. But instead of making this into a coffee table, I think my next project will be to make a coffee table display case with this in mind from the beginning. I'll use better wood and make it a bit nicer looking.
    Right now, I'm working on building a smaller display case (12"x16"). I think I'm going to make it with rounded edges for the challenge, and because I've never seen one with rounded edges. I'll post photos when I finish.

    Hey Jay, that is pretty cool. Make a base for it and use it for a coffee table.

    My First Home-Made Arrowhead Case

    Earlier this year, I got the idea to build a big display case, mainly just for something to do to spend time with my Grandfather, but I thought that I would use it to consolidate my insect collections that I put together when I was a kid. At the time, I hadn't yet started collecting arrowheads, but it was only a few weeks after we built this that I did start collecting arrowheads. I decided that I would use it to display my artifact collection when it gets large enough (might be awhile), rather than using it for my insect collections.
    It is 24"x36" with a glass lid and is made of poplar that I stained. As you can see, I didn't stain the bottom of the inside of the case because that will have foam covering it anyway. What do you guys think? I know it is kind of deep, since it wasn't originally designed for arrowheads, but I think it will work fine. I have small battery powered LED lights that nicely light it from the inside.



Working...
