    what do you guys think? The spaces are waiting for Anduril, Legolas' knives, and Aragons Elven knife. Then comes the scabbard, helm of gimli, and MAYBE hadafang. IT hasn't gotten much screen time so I'll wait until ROTK

    I like your display cases. Did you make them or buy them pre-made?

    Cool cases. Where would one go about getting iron stock, and how thick is the plexi? I was looking into several places to purchase cases but most are a grand or more.

    Those cases are excellent. I don't suppose anyone's got a spare wall I could borrow? I seem to have run out....

    Well, My store of choice is the home depot. THey sell the iron and plexi. To cut the iron I just used a reciprocating saw. The plexi I used a plexi knife. THe thickness is the cool part about this. YOu don't have to buy expensive thick plexi because it is only for show. Also, The plexi isn't supporting itself, it's glued to the steel so the steel's acting like a support frame. The most tedious part of this was the cutting of the heads of the bolts. Make sure you clamp them real tight when cutting them or they'll start spinning on you. Another thing. The top and bottom part of the cases are actullay shelves mounted to the wall. The plexi and steel part actually slides in and out so I can take my swords out. The BEST part about these cases is that plexi is very Static. So, any dust that gets in, gets attracted to the plexi keeping the swords completly dust free. IT amazed me to see that after almost a year, there is bascially no dust on the sword or the plaque. ANy more questions are welcome but you see now how I answer them. the longer the question, the longer the answer. lol

    One more thing. The cost for one of them is less than $100CDN. so you can see how it pays off. Just a little elbow grease

    Cool pic, tklosek. Why don't you put it up in the Gallery? That's why we have a "Sword Collections" spot.

    Wow, that's all of them so far. Good work.

    Welcome to the forums, Gonquin, but you need to change your sig. It has to be five lines or less. Check out the rules.
