DIY Glass Top Jewelry Display Case

Product Details

      You can make a glass top display case for jewelry by assembling a box from wood. To make the top, use the glass from a picture frame. Making the box you first need to determine the size of your case such as 12 inches by 14 inches. You can do this by first making all of the pieces for the box. Once done you can then begin assembly of your jewelry display case.
       Things you will need:

       12-inch by 14-inch picture frame

        4-foot 1-inch by 3-inch boards

        Wood glue


       Step 1:  Remove the glass from the 12-inch by 14-inch picture frame. Set glass aside.

       Step 2:  Measure the 4-foot 1-inch by 4-inch board to 10 inches with the tape measure. Cut two pieces matching this length with the miter saw. Measure and cut two pieces measuring 14 inches.

       Step 3:  Set the angle of the miter saw to 45 degrees. Cut a 45 degree angle on the left side and right side of the cut pieces of wood.

       Step 4:  Apply a bead of wood glue to the edges of the cut pieces of wood. Assemble the wood into the shape of a box that is 12 inches deep and 14 inches wide. Secure the wood with clamps. Drive two finish nails in each corner with the nail gun. This is the frame for the jewelry case.

       Step 5: Measure a piece of scrap plywood to 12 inches by 14 inches. Cut the plywood to this size by using the circular saw.

       Step 6: Apply a bead of wood glue to the top of the wood frame. Set the cut piece of plywood on top. Drive the finish nails into the perimeter of the frame to secure the plywood.

       Step 7: Set the wood box with the open side up. Set the glass from the picture frame on top. Secure two hinges to the glass by using the epoxy. Allow 4 hours for the epoxy to dry.

      Step 8: Secure the hinges to the wood frame with screws using the power drill.
