How to make a lego minifig display case

So here is a step by step description of how to make a display case using an ikea picture frame and lego for shelves.

These instructions allow you to display a single series of collectable minifigures in one ikea RIBBA frame.

UPDATE:

Jeremy emailed me and has made this for his series 4 collection (JEALOUS!)

But he kindly sent a picking list over for almost the same style of build, so I’m going to include it here in case anyone is looking to get these from Bricklink:
