First Attempt at D.I.Y. Display Box

I've always had access acrylic pieces and a sawing machine which we use to produce one of our goods. And I've been thinking how cool it would be if I had a nice looking display kit for my models. Since leaving them hidden in my closet kind of defeats the purpose I bought them. Then seeing that there was a few discarded acrylics lying around at the factory and today was an off-day at work (can someone say FFFRRRRRRREEEEEDDDDDDDOOOOOMMMMM!!!??? Lol!) I finally got my lazy arse off the chair and my eyes off the computer. Went to the factory and did my very own display box.

Funny thing is, first piece I cut and damn! Already a mistake. Lol! Had the bottom base of the box cut too short. Hence the white color piece lying across the base of the display box. To "lift" the cover so that the top will align with the the box. Else the cover will just drop inside. Lol! -.-"

What better way to take photos than to have my 2 new wai-fus pose in it. :p

Unfortunately,Shana and Miku will both be going back into the closet for now. That's cause I have an idea in my head for recreating this. Lol! Let's hope the result will come out all right. First thing to do then would be a background print.

  1. Wah! Totally jealous of your skills! That looks like an amazing display case and I actually kind of like the white piece that you placed to cover the mistake, it looks nice at the angles that you took the pictures. Can't wait to see the result of your haruhi idea!

  2. wow... u got a glass cutting machine????
    It's seem REALLY BIG.. ^^ nice

    Got miku already?? she's great right??

  3. Nice box~! ^^v

  4. Thanks guys. The box actually looks much worst than the pictures are showing.

    The glue marks are evident. I'm using industrial-strength glue so the stains are irremovable. And it's actually one side small. Lol!

    It's not glass, it's acrylic plastic. But will still crack if dropped. And scratches easily. Already have tons of scratches now. -.-"

    And yeah,miku looks super sweet! Thanks for the recommendation!
