This is a small display case consisting of two halves: the bottom half shaped like a tray, with four additional vertical pillars, the top half with the glass plate. The two halves fit together, thanks to the pillars, without needing any hinge nor latch. The motivation to build this display case from scratch came from several reasons: After envisaging buying two picture frames, it turned out that (1) I could not find frames that are thick enough, (2) frames made in China means kerosene, (3) I cannot get the exact size I want, and (4) it would cost 2 X 20$ for wooden frames of nice quality. I had remaining wood from a former project. So the cost is just the glass (approx 8$) and the investment for a router bit to make the grooves (20$) Building from scratch is more fun!
This "Alcoa" bookcase is featured in a solid wood painted in a light blonde wood finish. This bookshelf is in great condition with 3 shelves and a simple modern design. Small display case perfect for storing a small collection of books! #traditional #storage #bookcase&shelving #sandiegovintage #vintagefurniture
