Very nice display!
So good, we need to see this on this page!
@djkemp if you don't mind my asking, are the glass doors custom cut, or can you find them in a hardware store? Can you tell us what lights you're using?
Beautiful display! Love the Arks and Orange
Thanks everyone for your kind words.
@old_seaweed @Mr. Humphreys The glass doors are custom cut and have little handles grooved in, the lights are kitchen cabinet lights, Parlat LED Under Cabinet Lights to be precise. I got fed up with trying differing quality USB strip lighting and really wanted the lighting to be bright and clean. Obviously not the cheapest option but worth it i think.
@djkemp Really love this setup. Very classy looking. Would look great with some giant-size right there on top
The custom cabinet looks great. Clean and it does become an issue for me when things are too close to the floor. Hard to view…
I’ve filled all my cases but am now looking for a similar option where I can modify an existing piece of furniture.
I cant build anything but there is an abundance of lighting options and getting glass or plexi cut to size is pretty easy if there is a place near you.
@djkemp , thank you for answering the questions! Please take photo updates as you add more toys. It's a unique setup!
Any recs for a really solid glass/acrylic display cases, for smaller pieces? I'm trying to display a single special piece with its packaging, don't want to take chances with dust and light for once, and would prefer to avoid the distorting effect of domes and cloches. If there's any time to pay too much for UV-resistant glass, super mega spaceship dust seals, whatever else, it's now.
nothing personally I’ve used, but I’ve been searching for custom 5-sided acrylic display cases, and in my search I’ve found that so many places do custom ones.
Do a quick Amazon search and I’m sure you can find what you’re looking for at an affordable price.
Some have jointed connections, that you can build yourself, but some come in one piece, with or without a base.
