    What's your go to method for making them? I have a router jig to make drawers but it isn't my favorite. I've often thought about the iBox jig but never have been motivated enough. It'd also be tempting to make a dedicated fence for a miter gauge but i haven't gone down that avenue yet.

    I’ve made 3 or 4 for the TS and saved the good test pieces for setting it up works like a dream also I’ve made them on my Leigh jig and that works even better once it’s set up

    I"ll probably need to use 1/4" glass because the opening is 44" x 40"

    yeah hinge a door or make 2 doors and use glass door hinges and magnetic catches, or 1 piece and hinge it on the top, i did a big one many years ago, it sat on the floor for a guys toy tractor collection, used 1/4" for the front and sides and tempered on the top with a mirrored back that slid it tracks for access, this going on a wall Drew ?

  4. They sure can, they must have been coming and going for a long time, there were 3 dead ones and one live one and it gives a new definition to the word stink

  5. @Chestnut funny thus just came up, I just finished one in walnut, promised a good friends widow I would make one for my friends flag, I used the plans off of Woodworkers Journal for the dimensions, applied a 1 1/8” by 5/16” thick  mounding on the front of the case to retain the glass and used silicone to secure it in place, 1/4” MDF back screwed into a rabbit in the back, it’s always an honor to make these as sad as it is
