    After talking with a few Forum Members, I have built up an example for you folks to view. This is mainly for oblazer and Yoshi, but let me know what you guys think!

    Specs:

    Base is 6 5/16" x 7 3/8", 1/2 " tall.

    Spine is 10 3/4" tall, 2 1/2" long, and 3/4" wide.

    Plexiglass is at a state where you can actually swap them out. Unfortunately, the Tablesaw doesn't cut small enough for .08" Plexiglass. Thus, I had to double layer some stuff. Can fit 3 glasses, the top shelf is messed up because it was a test piece. The middle shelf is correctly sized, as is the bottom piece. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions, ideas, etc.

    Edit: I did this while I was teaching...haha. I get distracted easily. That's why there are students in the background.

    Update: Found a way to lock the plexiglass into place much better! Can't even tell! (Notice the paper in between the plexiglass and the wood).

    Thanks! Wasn't hard to do. Sending a few over to oblazer. Much cheaper though than the official Oakley Stands lol.

    Those look cool, you need to paint them black and put a big silver "O" decal on the bottom and you'll be set!

    God, that's sick XLNZAX! beautiful Gascan display you have there. I was giong to use my metal japanese oakley o icon sticker and stick it to the base. :) I actually like the woodgrain look. i worry if i painted it black, it'd look funky.
    but i like how slim your plexiglass is, and the wood. i'd probably display mine the same way but with the boxes. :)

    very nice work.
    do you have the transformers gascan? :D congrat's with the collection.
