    I'm planning on building a small display case to cover up some figures from getting dusty. Its pretty much going to be a 5 sided box with the bottom being the shelf I already have.

    What would people recommend to use for materials, and what stores can I get them at? I have already had some recommendations, but doesn't hurt to have more

    You could use plexiglass perhaps It's cheap for a sheet, and you can cut it with a utility knife. Use glass putty, silicone, or some type of glue to put the edges together.

    They sell those too.

    Plexiglass is what I was planning but I don't know any other materials. I was recommended silicone too. Gotta see what the stores has and how much they cost. Going to need the front, back and top to be like 47 inches

    Wonder if there's any other types of glue that I could use. Need to see around how much this might cost. I was hoping total would be around $30, but doesn't look like that's possible
