Wood Display Cases

 


Visitors: 738

Wood display cases, boxes, and domes are used for storing models, trophies, exhibits, flags, sports memorabilia, jewelry, cosmetics, and other collectibles. The base or supporting frame is made of wood while the rest of the display case is of glass or acrylic. The type of wood used affects the quality and appearance of the display case.

Since wood can be drilled, sawed, and machined, it can be fashioned into display cases of various shapes and sizes. The quality of the display cases depends on the sort of wood used. Aspen, mahogany, oak, rosewood, maple, rosewood, and pine are just some of the types of wood used for making cases. There are two kinds used to make display cases, hardwood and softwood. Hardwoods like rosewood, cherry, walnut, oak, and maple are hard and have a well-defined grain pattern. They look best when given a natural finish. For example, display cases made of oak are sturdy and heavy. With a natural finish, oak has a white or red-black tint, uneven texture, and very distinct grain design. Mahogany display cases have a reddish brown, spotted texture.

Softwoods like pine and cedar are soft and have simple grain pattern. They are ideal for making light bases for glass or acrylic domes and boxes. Pinewood display cases may have a finishing of gloss, oil, or lacquer. They get scratched and damaged easily and are not suitable for heavy or large display cases.

Wooden cases have an old-world elegance to them. Handcrafted wooden display cases are highly valued for their workmanship. Wooden display cases have a unique style and can be easily assembled. They can be set off against other pieces of furniture in the room or they can harmonize well with the décor of any room, office, or hall. Wood cases create an ambiance of security, solidity, and warmth and are more popular than metal or acrylic cases.
