Starting on what COULD BE my last set of cabinets.

Anyone attending the Ohio Show Nov 1-3 that wants a 3x2? Reserve it with your deposit now before our baby comes and I don't have the time or energy to build one for you.

Quality display cabinet built for decades of worry free enjoyment.

Still using the first two cabinets I built in 2000 and running the same bulbs and ballast!

Order now to pick your stain color and switch location. 4 - 5000K Daylight Bulbs with 85 Color Rendering Index and 30,000 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.

Shelves weigh 4.3lbs each so 17lbs total for the bundle of four shelves.

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 pictured is Golden Oak. I have many options.

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.

Weight of empty cabinet is 37lbs without glass.

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.

I will deliver this to the Springfield Ohio Nov 1-3. 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.

Thank you for looking, Brian
