really amazing and you are obviously very talented.

questions - so the watches hang thought the openings? How are they held in so they don't fall through? Also, can you put watches with leather bands on that tower.

very very cool!

the casebacks rest on the rubber lining. yes, leather will work also. it holds 28. 2-10 watch shelves and 1-8 watch shelf with larger openings for wider straps like the RDQ.

just awesome my friend.


how many hours did it take for you to construct those towers?

a few. not too bad once i broke out the table saw, drill press, and nail gun. the solid pieces go pretty quick. making the holes for the watches takes a little longer. the finishing and painting take the longest.

Very nice case you made BRZ.. great to see a fellow woodworker here... I'm like you ... why buy when you can make your own custom case and have it exactly the way you want it. Congrats brotha..

You did a really nice job on the tower. If I have a GGT or FGT in S. TX, do you want to provide one for the drawing?

Since I'm the only one here, it'll be an intimate affair at my place, but the tower will be the GRAND PRIZE if you're on board with the idea...

Dude, that tower is definitely worth the price of a Southwest fun fare... Really nice job on the tower!

By the way, high today was +/-80. It's been really nice, the cool front brought the 95+ temps down finally.
