As with most of my projects I start with only an idea, no real plan. They sort of get engineered on the fly and many times are far different than the idea. This started out to be a restore/mod of the small Oakley watch glorifier. The fake leather had deteriorated. I was going to replace the strips with a acrylic sheet and drill holes for the watch stand. The Acrylic shop didn't have time for a one off so he handed me a larger 1 1/2" rough sawn block. After block sanding, adding a beveled edge and polish this is where I am at. It can be configured from 1 - 14 watches plugging empty holes with the rivets. Working on some ideas for the risers. Will update as it evolves.
