Format: Paperback
This book was written in a thoughtful manner. The projects not only will be useful display cases, but the building process may teach you a new technique or two. Mr. Proulx gives plenty of room for the reader to use preferences and our imagination to customize the build process. Ideas presented in a chapter can be utilized and adapted throughout the book and added to your skill set. I feel these are quality projects using the tools that most of us have access to along with reasonable raw materials. Before the first assembly there is a review of materials, hardware, and joinery. The eleven projects are as follows:
1) Table display cabinet -the example shown is an enclosed case for a model sail boat.
2) Tall display cabinet - this is an 80" tall cabinet such that you could use for figurines.
3) Wall mounted cabinet
4) Divider wall display cabinet
5) China credenza and hutch
6) Contemporary display and storage cabinet
7) Corner china and display cabinet
8) Wine display and storage cabinet - includes details on building raised panel doors and drawers.
9) Entertainment and display cabinet
10) Curio cabinet
11) Military memorabilia cabinet

As you can see there is a wide variety of displays. I also have several of the author's other books and they ALWAYS provide fun, interesting, and useful projects and woodworking lessons. You cannot go wrong with Danny Proulx.

This book contains clear, concise, well-illustrated plans and instructions for building several beautiful display cases for a variety of different kinds of displays. I am currently building a display case for a wooden model sailing ship using the design in the book, and plan to build several of the other designs as well. Highly recommended!

On many of these projects you need sophisticated and expensive equipment.Also some of the techniques called for are very dangerous to perform. Some methods of assembly are complicated and the construction is weak.
