Not too sure if this is on the right forum topic or not!

Has anyone else either made or plan on making their own display case?

I ask this as I've just finished my second one and am always looking for suggestions on how to make it better/cheaper.

The one I've just made cost me about 30 in total but I'm sure this is cheaper than buying one. I will post some pictures up tomorrow.

As promised, here are some of the pictures.
The 1st one shows the case from the outside.
The 2nd one shows the lock I fitted inside.
The 3rd one shows the canvas type material I fitted inside (I used clear nail varnish to stop it fraying)
The 4th one shows how I secured the window with very small Beading, it also shows the Brass Hinge, the Brass Corner to tidy things up & the interior corner pieces I used to generally strenthen the case.
The 5th one shows the Lock from above and
The last one shows the pre shaped Beading I used to secure the window in place.

I hope you like it
