Hi All

I am trying to compose a list of display case makers for those that do not have the time or workshop to make their own.
The goal is to keep this list to custom makers and not the hobby shop retail variety.
To start the list is limited to those that I have personally used, but I know that there are many more.

Here is a link to the specific ordering page for Cases For Collectibles website. You can order bases and acrylic covers in 1 inch increments. Note that one option for the base is manufactured wood (more stable than milled wood). The wood base consists of two pieces of mfd wood; the top piece is smaller, and the clear acrylic cover fits over that. I paint the base rich black and then sand it, to give it an antique, distressed look. I'm attaching a photo of one of my models on this kind of base (the cover is not pictured, but the cover of course is very helpful to keep dust off when not viewing the model).
