My fave old chipboard guitar case with cowboy and western print bit the dust last week at the age of 60 some years. Now it is a pretty cool shelf in my music room.

 I love that lamp, Unc! The shelves are very cool as well.

Ha, AGP.  I did think of your fine fiddle case guitar when I was making the shelf.

"Cool UJ", have seen old Gits and Guitar Cases used for other purposes as well  :-)

Five thumbs up, yeah! That’s what I’m talking about Uncle John. Nicely done!

Love it. Old guitars, that can't be fixed, can be used too.
