    Looking for a plexiglass display case to hang on the wall
    something that opens would be best . Thanks
    nothing wood looking for clean lines
    tried the baseball wall tubes but they are a little to short and not wide enough .
    Can do custom made to much money :(
    Any way to modify something let me know .

    If it were me and you were looking for something similar to the baseball wall tubes I would just get some thin plex and make your own tubes.

    Or, create your own plex box and fasten it over a mount like this:

    (you could make the stand in plex as well if you want that clear look)

    Have you checked out baseball bat wall mounted cases (not the tubes)?

    Do an image search on Google for: baseball bat case

    Michaels craft store carries a nice baseball bat case. I think it us $59.00. It is black wood with a glass front. You can get 50% off coupons in the paper and online weekly, and pick it up for $30.00

    Will fit up to a 34" object. The case is 39" long. They are assuming you will put a ball in the case, so you will have a few more inches to play with. I say a 36-37" sword would fit.

    They make glass and wood rifle display cases. May depend of the shape of our sword.

    You can always build one. I built this one for mine, although is made out of wood.But built right it will still look nice.
