    Playing Card Display Cases

    I was tired of storing my decks in a shoebox. I didn't have enough room on the tops of dressers anymore. Worst of all, I didn't have any options. Until now.
    Since I couldn't find a playing card display case, I designed my own. I explained the idea to my father who built them, and voila. I'm still in the process of filling them up. But according to my father, the design is easy and completely customizable in case I had a smaller collection or if (when) my collection grows. Hope you like them. Tell me what you think! Thanks!

    Wow, those are great. I really like those. The only thing different I'd want is if it was covered in glass to discourage people from handling them.

    The difference with my collection is that for the most part, I use all my decks. I was thinking about a glass covering, but I wanted the cards readily available to me.

    I'm glad you like them! Thank you!

    I wondered about that, because some of the boxes look used. Very cool.

    Where'd you get the green Tally-Ho deck? I didn't think they made that.

    To be honest with you, we were thinking about it. I didn't really want to advertise here (forum rule breaking?) but they're quick and easy to build. And totally customizable by size (how many decks) and color.

    The way my collection's going, I'll need another one soon!

    I'm jealous. Very sleek!
    How much would it cost to build one of those? If you don't mind me asking...

    So can you give the detail for the wood piece. So I can make my own case.
    Also I send you a private message!!!!

    My Dad is one of those "attention to detail" type of carpenters so I'm not really sure how he built it or what kind of wood he used. With things like the primer and paint and the little groove to hold the cards at an angle, it took him a little while.
    But with the popularity, he's going to look into a price, which will depend on how many decks you want it to hold.

    p.s. I just added the Red Dragon Deck to my cases!!
    When's E coming out with a new deck!!??

    Looks really nice! I'm thinking about building something like that myself, but I need a few more decks for it.
