It's easy to make a memory box without glass.

Why on earth would you create something like this behind glass? Why not keep these items in a basket or open box? Lovely idea, but this implementation isn't really practical.

If you look at the various cabinets below the video offered by Amazon, you can see that half of them use no glass (in the lower two rows). The glass is an option for situations where it is appropriate, but you can certainly do a beautiful memory box that has no glass whatsoever. Best of luck.

Great idea if the person with dementia doesn't tear them apart, as it happed at my house.
