      Bit of a long shot here but do you still have the English instructions,  just started this build and mine came with French ones. If you do would you be able to scan me a copy?
    • Impressive case!
      And so it happens: I will be needing to make one myself very soon.
      What I wonder: do the glass panels go through the horiontal wooden frame parts into the grooves in the base? Or are your horizontal frame parts equipped with extending part to fit into the groove of the base?
    • Thanks Charles for the likes!
      It is Walnut that I milled myself. The base is Mahogany with a Walnut border. The vertical corners are not attached to the base. The entire glass frame is made to fit in the glass trough in the base (you can see the in the pics of the base). The frame is all mortise and tenon construction so I did not need either screws or nails, just glue 9Except for the top, that is screwed to the corners). Just sits snug as a bug in the glass trough 🙂..............Shipshaper.
    • Shipshaper:
      Beautiful case; looks like walnut.  Is the platform cherry?  How did you attach the vertical corner supports to the base?
    • Absolutely stunning !! Love it
