How to build a Model Ship Case

E-Book - Build Your Model Ship Case

The author started with a blank piece of paper, a fifty year old table and miter saw, and built the beautiful 52”x12”x 28”glass and wood display case pictured on the cover of the book . The case has a 1” wooden oak base and is the case actually constructed while writing this book, so you don’t get any theory - just real facts of how to do it yourself. The wood for the case cost $43.00 and will take about two weeks part time to build.
