This began as a quick display case project to prepare for this summer’s markets and outdoor demos. However, it soon became an art and design challenge when the latch lever idea began to materialize. The driftwood legs contrast with the cedar and glass to add some west coast flair and really bring the piece to life.

Thanks to some reclaimed red cedar and antique copper nails, this newly built display case looks like a repurposed old drawer with a lock on it. The plate is chiseled out of reclaimed sheet scrap and the key is hand forged scrap bar stock. The box is about 20″ by 21″, the stand is 19″ high, and the key is about 4.5″ long.
