Meet Grandpa’s Cabinets

Our Custom Display Case Craftsmanship

Grandpa’s Cabinets takes pride in their high quality display cases knowing that they will protect and enhance your model art for years to come. As a modeler, I know the time and effort spent creating a model.
You deserve a display case that embraces the same quality standards reflected in your model.

Below are a few pictures that describe the craftsmanship and design

Custom display case

Ron takes time to choose the best pieces of hardwood for the case or kit order and does the milling and shaping himself.

Custom display case in construction

Ron uses jigs and shaping tools to heat bend the acrylic sheeting to form the all optical grade acrylic that will end up as the cover for a display case.

The hardwood base has been routed and sanded to desired finish quality, and a final coat of polyurethane clear coat is applied.

The hardwood base is finished, clear coated, and the acrylic top is flame polished and test fitted for the quality fit and finish each customer expects just prior to packing for shipment.
