I seen a display case on the internet but it was pricey, so, I made two, one for him and one for me
Step 1: Parts
• black spray paint
• 9mm ply ( about 20mm by 50 mm cut into 2.5cm strips, then cut to fit inside the frame you have, mine was 39.5 cm )
• picture frame ( from wilkinsons for £4 each )
• some tacks
• tape ( masking tape )
• simple tools ( hammer, hand saw/band saw, tape measure )
• a few odds and sods I've probably missed
Step 2: Cuts,
Strips cut - 2.5cm by 39.5cm ( inside frame measurement, your will depend on your frame size)
Step 3: Corners
Step 4: Setting Gaps !
On my frame I worked it out to be 7cm per gap, so what I did was cut two bits of ply to 7cm and us them as a guide to position my first shelf, marked it on the frame and drilled a pilot hole, then tacked the shelf in place,
Once the first shelf was in place, I moved the two 7cm guides on top of the shelf and repeated the process all the way to the top.
Step 5: Back
I used a square and the head of the tack pins to line up the square on the back and mark where the shelf was, then marked a line across the back on all shelves, and used three pins per shelf to tack it in place.
Then when it's all secure, I used masking to tape the edge of the frame and back just to seal everything together.
Step 6: Legos!
Mark the middle of each shelf and start there, glueing with superglue each piece as you go, till you've filled up all the shelves.
Step 7: Paint
Step 8: Done
( I need to give this one another coat of black because the back board has really soaked it in! )
Thanks for looking, happy building!
