Following the order from a collector of old books I made a couple of Display Stands to keep and exhibit old valuable prints in a safe way. I made them of selected oak wood, finish with French polish. They have LED lights and books desks are covered with woolen cloth.

How does it open? – very easy! The top glassy part is held into position by two bolts whitch are electrical contacts in the same time. In order to open the stand just lift the upper paart up.

Wow, a case like that would almost out-class whatever books are contained within it.
Very nicely done!
