After you clean out your attic don’t put all those collectibles back up there in a box, instead put them on display for all of your guests to see. After all, that is why you bought them in the first place. Finding the right display cabinet and not spending an arm and a leg on it can both be challenges. Sometimes the best solution is to make it yourself. This allows you to choose the materials that are used, the dimensions of the case and how you want them to be displayed. Is it best on a wall, on a table top or maybe you need to go all out and create a full cabinet. Knowing how to build what you need allows you to do what is right for your specific collectables and make them shine in the best light.
