I finally completed the knife display case and delivered it to the lady who commissioned it. She was very happy with the case, which is the most important thing. It is a wedding anniversary gift for her husband. His collection of Harley knives has been sitting in the closet for many years, so now he will have them out on display.
The case is made from Tiger Maple and African Mahogany and is approx. 16″ x 32″. The joints are inlaid half blind dovetails. The wooden hinges are made from tiger maple. The pockets for the knives were routed with the Daisy Pin Router and then were flocked. A french cleat on the back of the display will allow it to be hung on the wall. It is pretty heavy and I thought a french cleat would be the safest means of hanging it.
Here are some images of the completed project.
