This is a mahogany cabinet that I built about nine years ago for the first ship model that I ever made. The design is one that allows the cabinet to be mounted on the wall so that it doesn't take up any table top space. I wanted clean views of the interior so it originally did not have any corner supports in the front. After about a year on the wall of my office at work the base started to sag a little so I added brass rod supports to the front of the case that transferred the wight of the glass to the much stronger upper portion of the case. After changing jobs I brought the case home and added mahogany "L" pieces to the front of the case to cover a section of glass that spalled off years ago when the brass rods were installed. The case has a light in the top with a switch under the cabinet. These are a couple of shots of the case in the workshop after adding the front pieces.
