Default bhuddist triangle

I had to find a way of displaying a set of 6 small buddha figures without them being dust magnets.
So I made a Beech triangle with three Bubinga splines in each joint.
But then I realised it was not deep enough to hold the glass as well as the figures.
So I made a quarter round moulding out of Maple to extend the depth.
But then I didnt like two of the mitre joints so I made wing tips out of more Bubinga.

The back is 12 mm ply with black flocking, and the figures are on Bubinga pedestals mortise and tenoned into the ply.

Unfortunately because the thing kept changing and it almost got binned twice, I didnt take any pics of the process. So all I have are these of it hanging on the wall. But I am pleased with the (eventual) outcome.

Bob,

Nice job. How did you attach the back?

Great work Bob. Love the extra touches you add, as the splines really make the difference for me

Very nice job. The up close shots show nice, tight joints and well finished.

My original plan was a 16 sided circle, but I had to give up on that because I could not get all the pieces cut accurately enough.
So i switched to three angles instead

That turned out to be a very nice looking display case.

Did you try using a 16-side bird mouth router bit? Run a cut on one side of a long board, then cut it into 16 pieces?
Here's a pic of a box using an 8-side bit. The sides lock together nicely.

That is a really nice piece Bob. And a clever save.
