    Recently finished my new display case for Neps. It is outdoors under shade cloth with a little early/late direct sun.
    It measures 60" x 20" x 26"




    There is still room for a few more [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Very nice! I might have to steal your design. What are you using for the sides - is that glass or plastic? Did you build that frame yourself?

    My DW found a free used bakers display case, (glass sides). The bottom was a little water damaged so I pulled up some of the thin wood and layed leftover linoleum down. I used 20" plastic pot trays with plastic egg crate, (check the fluorescent lighting cover section at Home Depot), over it to add a little humidity. A cracked finish fluorescent lighting cover sheet with 1"x2" wood liquid nailed to the edge for stiffness over the top. Total cost, about $30.

    Wow! That's really a great way to go about it. I must stay on the lookout for old bakery displays...
