    Made this for my DH. He has a large collection of hot wheel and matchbox cars.
    Hope you like it.

    Thanks for the comments. I had a blast making this.
    List of materials are as follows. Materials purchased from Home Depot.
    Outside rail: 070673863561 Capwhite867 8' $2.67 FRP/TILE CAP
    Inside rail : 070673858864 DVDWTE855 8' $2.67 FRP/TILE DIVIDER
    Luan or 1/4" Plywood
    Wood Glue
    Paint or leave natural your choice.

    I just played around with arranging the cars until I liked what I had, then glued down the dividers.

    Hope this helps.

    IT does, thank you so much. right now my son's (who is in the army) collection is in a plastic tote under my bed to keep it safe. I would love to display those in our spare room so he can enjoy them when he comes home.
