Above I have constructed shelf that has a loose lid top and will have glass that slides into the front to create a box/shelf piece. The objects that will go inside have been chosen but I have the idea to use a frosted texture glass as to distort the objects from view with only a hazy outline to suggest what the object is. Having the box made is a good feeling and gives me the sense I have something ready to show. A map will accompany this piece as the background for the back of the box. I have also decided to leave the box wood tone instead of painting it white. Although it is a plywood material I like the natural tone of the wood.
