PostSubject: New Display Case..........   August 27th 2018, 9:53 am

Hi all!

Managed to pick up a used display case for $40 a few months ago. Thought it would be a neat way to display some of my smaller items in my collection  (dust collectors). Smile  It's on a lazy susan and rotates 360 degrees either way.

Gonna go through some of my photos and see what I can come up with to cover up the watch brand at the top.

No room for a spot light where I have it now. However, I have thought maybe a small string of led lights at each shelf maybe?

This place is pretty inexpensive and has a few ideas for lighting.

Found a way to hide the brand names of the watches that the display case was made for. Not the cleanest job in the world, but for now anyway, I kinda like the old worn out impression it gives.

A couple of pieces of birch plywood and a few logos ironed on from the laser printer did the job.

That was a great idea, I would never have thought of making iron-on logos!  And that case will be great to display those small "dust collectors". 

Last Christmas Sam's Club had a 5 pack of remote controlled lights pretty cheap, so I bought them and used one in a curio cabinet where the wife has a Nativity scene.  I didn't use the color function too much, but liked the idea of being able to dim the display, maybe they would work for you (Amazon has them now):

Thanks for the link. I just checked it out on the Amazon Canada site and they are CAN$46.45. That's pre taxes and shipping. I only paid $40 for the case, so I think I'll shop around. They are nice lights though and I do like the remote option of them. So, that gives me something to look for. Smile
