   - What makes your cases better than the cheaper ones I see on Ebay or Amazon?

     Quality.
    All of my cases are made with REAL oak, poplar, or birch, one at a time.
    I don't use any laminations, veneers, particle board, or plastic (except for the Lego).
    I also use authentic Lego pieces that are embedded in the shelves. 
    My cases look classy, professional, and are well-built.

    With proper care, my cases will last for generations.
    Oh, one more thing; my cases are MADE IN AMERICA!

   - What sizes are available?
   
I can certainly make any custom size you like, but the standard sizes are:
    1 x 1 (actual size 14" tall x 12" wide) (holds about 32 minifigures)
    1 x 2 (holds about 50 minifigures)
    2 x 2  (holds about 130 minifigures)
    2 x 3  (holds about 190 minifigures)
    2 x 3.5 (actual size 24" x 43" - my most-popular size.  Hold 250+ minfigures)
    2 x 4  (holds about  280 minifigures)
    
3 x 5 (Flagship Model.  Holds about 400+ minifigures)    

   - How long does it take to make a case?
  
I am a one-man operation, so it depends on how backed up I am. 
   Since I make my cases as they are ordered, is does take some time. 
   On average, from start to finish, it takes about three weeks for the
    larger cases (before shipping). 
   Around the holidays, things can take a bit longer.

   - What styles/colors are available?
  
Natural oak, stained oak, or painted to any color.

  - Can you paint it in ______ color??
   Yes.

   - Is there a glass front available?
  
Yes and no.    I use 1/4" thick acrylic.
    I don't use real glass because it is too heavy, too expensive, and can be
    potentially hazardous around kids. 
    Also, since I ship 90% of my cases, real glass is almost guaranteed to break
    during shipping. 

   - How are your cases hung/displayed?  
 
 Two ways: You can either opt for flush-mount hangers on the back or
   I can build you wooden feet (stand) on the bottom of the case (extra cost).

   - What's up with the lighting?

   The lighting is amazing!  I developed a way to run LED light strips embedded
   under
each shelf.  The result is no heat, very little power consumption (4 Watts),
   and they will last for years without issue (rated at 10 years, non-stop use).
   Also, all of my lighted cases have wireless remote control for on/off and brightness.

  
- How are the lights powered?
   I supply a standard 12v power adapter that plugs into any household outlet.

   - Can I order different colored lighting?
  
Yes. Any color of the rainbow is available.
   Also, white lights can be "warm" or "cool".

  - Do you ship?
   YES!  Most of my cases are shipped, but unfortunately,  it isn't cheap.
   Because my cases are large and heavy, shipping can get a little pricey.
   Email me your city, zip, and sized case you're interested in and I will get you
   an exact shipping quote.

   - How do I order and pay for a case?
 
The old-fashioned way - with personalized attention.
 
Go to "Contact", send me an email and tell me what you'd like or what you're interested in.
  I will respond with a quote and/or any questions I might have regarding your design.
  Once everything is set, I will send you an invoice where you can pay through Paypal or Credit Card.
  Once I receive your payment, it will lock you into the build cue for the next batch of cases I make.
  I will send you photos of the construction process so you can watch it go together and
  know where things stand as far as timing.

  - Do you make cases without Lego plates or other designs such as furniture and toys?
  You bet!  I love to do someting different and/or challenging.
  Let me know what you need and I'll see what I can do with your ideas!
