Hess Display Case

I have a Hess truck collection that you can find off from a link on the home page of this site. I have divested of many of them and don't really collect them any more, however there are a few that are very valuable that I have chosen to keep and display. To purchase a Hess truck display case of the size I was looking for, to be able to display up to 15 full size trucks, just wasn't possible. So I decided to build my own. Here is a sketch of what the completed case will look like: I will purchased the maple hardwood for the frame at my local Hearne's Hardwoods, the maple plywood for the back at my local Lowes and the glass shelves and UV filtering glass front at a local glass shop. I'll probably start in a couple of weeks.
