    Default Mounting personal items in display box

    Bit of an unusual one this but it's crap outside so worth a shot. Its a month from the wife's birthday (shes 33 weeks pregnant) and I know what I want to get her it's just I'm not sure where to start. She's got her late grandfather's old hand wood plain tucked away in our shed, he was a chippy by trade and passed away before we got together but they were very close.

    I'd like to get it mounted in a plastic display box, along with a photo of them both together and an engraved plaque, and possibly some proper wood shavings for it all to sit on. I could probably source all the bits separately and do it myself but it wouldn't be the same as a professional job.

    I'm thinking try local trophy shops first and take it from there. Has anyone done this sort of thing before or got a lead to go on? Preferably somewhere in Hertfordshire so I can pop in and check on its progress.

    You can buy perspex display boxes on Ebay. Also surf the web, there are companys out there who custom make this kind of thing.

    The box isn't the problem, it's mounting everything properly I'd have trouble with. Been looking but nothing yet.
