Hey folks, I'm getting ready to put my Gilmer in a display case, I'm going to make my own base from hardwood flooring and trim moldings myself, but there is a place that makes custom acrylic tops or any shape you desire it seems, so for you guys who need this type of service click the link, or if you have your own preference to share that's great!

Thanks Kaye and Michael, still finishing up my move to the new homestead but will soon start on the display project. Gilmers are the perfect size for displaying :)

Here is one I made about 7 years ago or so? I went to a plastics place and had them cut the plastic and they sold me glue to attach it all together. Still holding up nice. They also had plastic mirror to put underneath.

I used to when I was a kid and retired a long time ago. Now my son has been playing around. This is just his overstock area. LOL

Wish I had started playing when I was younger, I'm struggling just to loose the bad habits, hope your son sticks with it, it's golden later on.
