This golf ball display case is the perfect handmade gift! It measures 18 1/2" x 15 1/2" and has room to display 35 golf balls. This is a beginner build, although it does require a little bit of precision. It is something you could easily tackle in a weekend.

Directions

Follow the steps below to complete this project.

1

Build Frame

Cut 2- 14" 1x3 boards. Drill pocket holes in each end of both boards. Cut 2- 18 1/2" 1x3 boards. Secure the 14" boards to the 18 1/2" boards with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue to make a frame.

2

Add top board

A 1- 14" 1x3 to the underside of the top board with wood glue and either 1 1/4" pocket hole screws or 1 1/2" brad nails.

3

Drill tee holes in shelf boards

Cut 5- 14" 1x3's. Using a 7/32" drill bit, drill a hole in the center of the board, then drill every 2 inches, working your way outward toward the ends of the board. See diagram. Please note: You may want to test drill bit sizes, based on the size of your tees. We found that 7/32" worked well for a standard golf tee. The Kreg shelf pin jig would work to help you keep your spacing, and make sure you drilled straight holes.

4

Attach Shelves

Attach the horizontal shelves to the vertical frame pieces using wood glue and either 1 1/4" pocket hole screws or 1 1/2" brad nails. Leave 2 1/2" between each shelf. Hint: Use a scrap 1x3 piece as a jig to keep your shelves spaced evenly.

5

Finish Shelf

Add decorative trim, if desired. Fill holes, sand, and either stain or paint your shelves.

6

Add Golf Tees

Cut your tees down to 3/4". We built a little jig so we could cut a lot of tees at once, and make sure they were all cut evenly. Once the tees are cut, dip them in a little wood glue and secure them into the holes on your shelves.

7

Add Backing

This step is optional. If you want backing on your shelf, cut a piece of 1/4" plywood, and secure it to the back with wood glue and brad nails.
