Tiny Display Case


Product Description

This small, glass sided display case measures only 5 x 5 x 8 inches (12.5 x 12.5 x 20 cm) and is the smallest ever built here.

It was built specifically for a family artifact: a 6 inch long, hollow wooden cylinder with a removable cap.  Its original function is unknown, but might have been a storage case for small crocheting needles.

The display case is mostly fir and alder clear finished with urethane and tung oil.  The hinged door on the reverse allows access for when we collect the crocheting needles.

What tiny, treasured heirloom have you that needs a case such as this?

    Case case wants to be a cigar humidor. Please provide air lock to slot in an apple slice.

      It would be interesting to learn just what the optimal humido-dynamics are for preserving cigars, and then build a case meeting these stringent requirements BUT accommodating my glass fetish.
