This is discussed in Model Ship World as “pretty clever” & “handy” when constructing a wood & glass display case for a tall model sailing ship.
"A Mandatory Book For Building A Glass Model Ship Case. Buy Now And Save!"
Dear Visitors and Friends,
After working on a model of a 48” wooden sailing ship for five years it became apparent that my endeavor needed a good looking display case not only to keep the dust off but to protect it from damage. The best price I could find on the internet was $400.00 and that didn’t include the glass or shipping. Then there was a 4 to 8 week wait for delivery. There were no good instruction books for building a case with limited tools so I started from scratch with a blank piece of paper, a fifty year old table saw, a twenty year old plastic miter saw and an assortment of tools given to me by my father years ago. The results can be seen on the cover of this book. This 50”X 12” X 28” case also has a 1” thick base into which the frame mounts. THE TOTAL COST OF WOOD FOR THIS DISPLAY CASE WAS $43.00.
What I am giving you in this book is your own complete set of simple step-by-step instructions, photos and sketches on how to build a beautiful display case with limited tools and budget not to mention the satisfaction of saying “I built this myself”.
