this is a 32’ display case i built at work for a glasses place downtown, turned out pretty good, considering its all melamine, the color is called Chocolate Pear Tree, the customer is supplying their own plexi shelves for the cases

Looks good. When you use melamine do you match the color of the trim (crown)? Couple more questions on melamine. Can you cut with a standard table saw (w/melamine blade) or do you need a scoring blade also. How do you apply the edging?

hey chris thanks, for the crown and any other moldings usually the supplier will carry a list of everything that comes in a particular color or pattern, when you buy a sheet ask someone working wherever you get it what else they have or can get you in that color, depends on what you want….
cutting it is tricky too, if you only need one good edge, a traditional table saw will do, just use a sharp blade and raise it up a little higher than normal too so the teeth are ripping down into the sheet more than coming across the top (if that makes sense to you).... if you need both edges good, you can always cut outside your mark with the table saw( or jigsaw or any saw really) and setup a straight edge for a jig and put a flush-cut bit in your router, thatll get you a nice edge (as long as your bits sharp), if your cutting a piece with a curve on it your jig will obviously be a little more involved…..if you have a table saw with a scoring blade or a cnc machine then Bobs your uncle…
the edges usually just get basic pre-glued iron-on edgetape (edgebanding) but a nice piece of solid wood stained to match your melamine is always a nice touch, anyway, hope that helps dude
