    Custom Baseball Card Storage Case!!

    I set out to build a custom card storage case that would not only be functional, but well made and simply beautiful.

    I feel that my dad and I have created just that. He is an amazing craftsman and I wanted to learn and absorb. Mainly we just had a blast hanging out.

    We turned a sketch I drew up into this wonderful piece of furniture and I am so excited to share it with the card collecting community.

    It will hold 2,400 standard PSA slabs as well as another 1,200 tall boy slabs.

    I would love to hear any feedback or comments. Thanks for watching.

    Thatís an awesome storage cabinet! You and your father did a great job building it. I like how you didnít include drawer slides to conserve room. The finish and hardware look great too! Years from now, the memories of building it with your father will probably be more precious than the cards it holds.

    Well done sir!

    Mike, I watched the video again and that's one thing I can say, is the time spent with your father is precious..

    I have done several projects with my dad and now that i'm here in So Cal, and he's still up in WA, I don't get to do those things anymore..
    (especially now that he's 80)

    Here's a project I took some pics of that he did for my mom's church..

    Pinbreaker - It is not lost on me how precious and awesome it is to spend time with my dad, make a beautiful piece of art, and make fun memories. I am glad you had the opportunity to do the same and I hope you will again in the future.

    That was outstanding. I can’t imagine a collector NOT wanting something like that if they have the space for it. Thanks for posting.

    Very nice piece of work. The time you spent with your dad on it will more precious than the piece and the cards in it, with time.

    Absolutely beautiful job fellas. You, like your father, with your custom cards are true craftsmen. Thanks for posting the video and your collector enthusiasm is contagious.
    The truth stands still.
