    Absolutely incredible James! Museum quality displays, I love the light colored wood. Are you going to put a clear finish on the wood or stain it? I think the light color looks best plus it makes the room brighter.

    Hi James,
    nice construction and really good display of your collection, and well done on bending the perspex
    not easy; Are you going to display in the centre of the room, if so post more pics it will be nice to see them.
