Evil Dead 2013 Location Souvenirs Display Case

Post by EvilDeadChainsaws »

This was a 2013 project to make a display case to display my haul of Evil Dead souvenirs taken from various The Evil Dead & Evil Dead II filming locations, a trip which can be read about here;

So, a short time after returning from this trip in January 2013, and having just completed the Replica Clock Project, I used much the same materials & techniques to construct a display case. I had intended it to be glass on four sides, but once I began design work on it, I realised that glass on the front & back, and wood on either side & top and bottom would be so much easier to make. From the outside it was intended to look like a regular varnished glass case, but inside; the shelf was made from a rough sawn piece of stained wood, and the base had fake floorboards on it, so everything inside the case would stylistically fit together. Along with displaying the various items collected, I added in an oil lamp and chain/hooks just for dressing, along with an American style pull-cord lamp fitting to illuminate the whole display. I also bought 6 old style Kilner Jars in which to store some of the material. You can click the photos below to enlarge;
