i have several sizes and prices available.

If you contact me soon, you can pick your stain color and switch location.

Specs: Best bulbs, best diffuser, best ballast, best shelves.

4 - 5000K Daylight Bulbs with 86 Color Rendering Index and 20,000 hour life rating.

1/4 inch thick sign grade milky white plexiglass diffuser that will not yellow over the years.

One - four bulb electronic ballast that will run quietly and cooler than the older magnetic ballast.

4 - 3/8 inch thick Starphire (almost Crystal Clear) glass shelves four inches by 24 inches. Extra shelves are $30. (that's my cost)

Made with 3/4 inch cabinet grade oak plywood and trimmed out with solid oak.

Four vent holes on the back to keep air moving. The bulbs and ballast run very cool, but a lighting engineer at Philips lighting told me the cooler you keep things the longer they will last.

Finish stain is a Golden Oak (shown). I have a few other colors available.

Smooth back with rounded edges for easy sliding into and out of vehicles.

A single light switch is on the side with a power outlet right below the switch for easy power access.

Dimensions are 28.25" widest point, 35" tall, and 12.75" deep.

You can get 55 ponies, or 50 tolls, or 40 beehives/signals in the case.

My price is $500, which is basically the material and a little for my labor. Had to raise the price because of material costs increasing.

I will deliver this to the KC show in March, the national show in Kansas City in June or the Springfield, OH show in Nov. Otherwise, we will have to figure something else out. I will not ship this as I have way to much blood sweat and tears invested to have it demolished by a shipper.

Picture is of an identical case made previously. The demand is there so I will continue to build these as long as they continue to sell.

Thank you for looking, Brian
