Display Case Information
Houston Display Furniture display cases can be made out of just
about any wood you want.  The most common woods are
oak, mahogany, maple, cherry, and walnut.

Basic case design is shown to the right.  Each corner is attached
to the bottom frame and top frame with screws.  The frames
and corners are slotted to accept
your glass panels.  Once
assembled, the case rests in the recess on the base.  The lid
has a recess on the top surface into which a glass panel rests.  
This lid is easily removed for access to the inside of the case.

Felt separators are located on the underside of the bottom
frame and the lid.  This provides a gap at the bottom and top of
the case to allow the inside of the case to equalize with the
outside environment.  This technique for case breathing
minimizes dust intrusion into the case.

All finished cases are coated with four coats of a clear finish to
enhance the color and protect your case.  Unfinished cases
come to you sanded and ready for your finish.  Cases can be
stained by request.  See the
Stain Color Chart for more
information.

Please note:  Glass or acrylic panels are not included in the
cost of the basic display case.  Due the high potential for
breakage, we do not ship glass
or acrylic panels.  

Panel dimensions are provided for purchase from your local
acrylic or glass providers.  Many glass shops will take your case
and custom cut the panels to fit the case.

Important note:  Panel dimensions are usually not the same
as the
inside dimensions of a display case.  Panels ordered
before the actual dimensions are provided, will likely not fit
in the
case slots.
Cases are shipped
flat-packed with all required
fasteners and complete
assembly instructions.
Easy to follow assembly instructions
include detailed drawings and
step-by-step instructions to guide
you through assembly.
