    Been putting of building a ribbon/trophy case for my daughter for her awards from horse shows. She only has 1 trophy right now and about 8 bigger ribbons. I don't want to make a typical rectangle glass door case, anyone got any creative ideas for me?

    How about one that would fit in a corner?

    A corner case might work, but it might end up as a corner cabinet (I forgot to mention I need to put her crowns and sashes in it from being royalty). Man, I'll never get that done by Christmas:angry:

    A series of shadow boxes might just work.

    Thanks for the ideas guys.:big_smile:

    K ,
    When I was building I used to go to the High end Antique Shops. they had all sorts of Ideas about cool thing doing alternate duty from their original job. And.. seems like the folks there are all about displaying different "stuff" in cool ways.

    Might get ya an Ideaor two.

    Brother Chad;
    You might consider either a Triangular or Trapezoidal style.
    Hope this helps.
