Materials Needed



Step 1: Measure, Mark & Cut Wood


Measure, mark and cut the 1-in. x 4-in. boards using a circular saw for six pieces at 28 inches long for the horizontal shelves, and two pieces at 29½ inches for the vertical sides of the display case.


Next, cut 20 pieces at 5 inches each–these will be the vertical inserts that create “cubbies” for each ornament within the frame.


NOTE: When cutting wood, always clamp it down to a stable work surface. Wear safety glasses, ear plugs and work gloves as your tools require.

Using square trim screws and a drill, assemble the perimeter of the frame using the two vertical pieces and two of the horizontal pieces cut in Step 1.

Building up from the bottom, evenly space four vertical slats every 5 inches, and attach to the bottom horizontal board using wood glue and a brad nailer.


HINT: You can use one of the 20 inserts as a spacer to make this part of process go faster.
