Default Hot Wheels Display Case

How would you build this?

I might get suckered into building one for my grand daughter who just turned 20 today. She has a bunch of them.

I like the KISS method. Keep it simple stupid!

There's a minor disturbance in the Force on FaceBook.

Yep. She also likes to play in the dirt!

She can handle a short hop with no problem!

And pitch too.

From her junior year (2012) at Bristow HS, Bristow, Oklahoma.
Edit: Now she is helping her dad coach a 10U girls fast pitch travel team.

Make the dividers out of hardboard, egg crate joints - a bunch of them. Make the tops, bottom and sides out of plywood, cut full width dadoes and glue banding on the front edges to cover the plies and hide the dadoes. The cars are light and the hardboard should be enough to support the weight.

Like I said. Sounds like a lot of work.
I just about worried myself sick building that darned liquor cabinet, but the egg crate style wine bottle rack turned out perfect.

That is 100 cars per frame!
UGH!
