To make sure the screws did their jobs, I knocked over each pin to see if it would fall off the display. The Canadian 5-pin comes close, but none of the pins fall off. I initially wanted the pins to be firmly attached to the display, but this method lets me remove the pins whenever I want.
The display only took a few hours - mostly for glue and stain to dry.
I can put my pin display pretty much anywhere. Even a high shelf in my garage. The screws will hold the pins should a strong breeze come by and attempt to knock the pins over.
Even though all my other pins will soon be gone, I know I have one of each to look at and smile. I will still dream of one day having a large bowling lane to play on, and if I ever do I have one of each pin to get me started!
