So you may remember I was asking questions about a graded card display frame. I wanted to make one for my brother for his Todd Frazier cards
He has the BGS version of
2007 BDPP auto base, xfractor, blue, gold, and orange
I wanted to display these five cards. I HAVE NEVER MADE ANY WOODWORKING BEFORE AT ALL. I borrowed some tools and figured I would try it out.
I went to the hardware store and got a 1x8x24 piece of pine.
I then started drilling out with a Router? with a 3/16 bit...
As you can see the BGS card fits in nicely in the slot
Today I just drilled out the rest of the frame for the 5 slots
So... as you can see this is my first project and it is not perfect what so ever.. however I am impressed with myself lol. As I go on, I think I'm going to get a thin black felt to lay in the card backs so it doesnt scratch the case. I also am going to stain it and then use a polyurethane over it. Once this is done, I plan on taking a thin sheet of Plexiglass and screwing it with probably brass screws.
I will update this as I update the frame.
Questions? comments? (please be gentle as this is my first project haha)
