Very nice...

What might look even better (at least for me) is a having a window (plexiglass) so peeps could view the cards without needing to open the case.

Beautiful, and I agree adding a display window would make it perfect so that the cards can be admired without having to open the box every time. Also if you can make it hold more than two cards, maybe four? Looks awesome btw! Have you considered selling them?

Thatís awesome. Iím looking to purchase or make 5 and 6 card displays to spell out my sonís names with letterman patches for their room. Woodworking is fun, and your skills constantly improve. Good luck!

I found these shadow boxes. They were way cheaper than making them.

Excellent taste! I'm about 80% complete building by stair parts for my house out of walnut and Birdseye maple. It's an expensive project.

Those are sharp! I built some to hang on a wall with a clear plexiglass front...wish I would have thought like you did I would have put a Bengals Logo into mine.
Great work!

I agree. As much as I like Matt Ryan and Russell Wilson, I think that is being a bit presumptuous. Still a nice piece though.

I appreciate the craftsmanship! Serious question, what would you do with a dozen identical boxes? Spend a half hour unstacking & flipping them all open to find what you want?

I've seen wooden boxes with plexi or glass tops before. I just never thought to use them for cards

Hey! I live in Arizona, what part are you in? Also, will you consider a custom order? Or do you just make for yourself?
