That is really well done!
I have an old silverware case like that, but my partitions did not stay in place. How did you construct and attach the partitions?
Thanks,
Ron

My wife, Jo did this, Ron. She used balsa wood for the dividers, covered them, using hot glue to hold the material, then hot glued them in place, making sure they were tight against each other. Hope this helps.

does the hot glue/gun work better or just as good as say, epoxy? I have couple of like projects to finish and never used a hot glue gun but my grand daughter uses one for sticking stuff on dresses etc.......

The reason Jo uses hot glue, Ron, is because it sticks (dries)quicker and if you make a mistake, you can pull up the divider and peel off the hot glue and re-position your divider, even after it dries.

Thank you!
Ron
You're welcome, Ron. If you have any more questions about your case, please give me a holler. I don't claim to have made the perfect display case, I just know what seemed to work for me.

I don't remember where I got that, Sonny. I just like it a lot. Jo will appreciate the compliment. Thank you.

Have met and talked to Buck Tayler when he sets up at the Tulsa Gun show. What a great person. For such a short guy, he stands pretty darn tall in my estimation. Bought several of his works.

Buck Taylor's dad, Dub Taylor, was always one of my favorite character actors. Dub also had a connection to my native Georgia.

Buck has a facebook page he will answer ever now and then. I had put in a flag pole with new flag with a light that shines down at night. I posted a picture once and he wrote me how much he liked it. He is in Fort Worth a lot my kids live east of Dallas. Forney, Texas..
