Lego minifig display case

Lish Dorset of CRAFT made this nice display case to show off her collection of Lego mini figures. She also wrote complete step-by-step instructions for making one of your own.

Project: Lego Display Case


  1. Not a very attractive or creative solution, and it really has nothing to do with Legos other than someone put Legos on it. So basically, this should be called, “Shelves: You can build them.”If I make a “Nintendo Display Case” by putting my Nintendo on a table, will you publicize it for me? I mean, you do like Nintendo, don’t you? …and I’ve mentioned Nintendo so my table is cool, right?

    HA! That’ll teach you to have a website and to like things!

  2. These exist in purchasable form as “slotted display cases”. They can be as expensive or as cheap as you’d like. 

  3. At first glance I thought that the author had used cheap wooden yardsticks to construct the shelves, and at second glance I thought that she and her boyfriend had found a source for old-fashioned wooden lath strips. 

    Then I saw that they were ripping strips from a sheet of  lauan, which I’ve done myself for similar small projects, and found it to be not entirely suitable.


  4. LEGOs, ukuleles, steampunk… some things just have a much lower attractive/creative bar to cross before they get the Boing Boing nod.
