QUARTER SAWN SYCAMORE
Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) is North America’s tallest hardwood. It is a close- textured wood with interlocking grain that makes it notoriously difficult to split. Because of its toughness and resistance to splitting, sycamore is often used for durable furniture items; making its wood great for display cases.
Craftworkers began to discover quartersawn sycamore. Quartersawing releases the hidden beauty of the wood. The large, dense clusters of brown rays contrast beautifully with the surrounding whitish wood tissue. The rays seem to bend and distort at the surface, creating a highly decorative figure that’s sure to get any woodworker excited.
Beautifully crafted and uniquely made, these display cases are made of quarter sawn sycamore collected from Amish mills. Locally made, each piece is handcrafted from quality materials made in our woodshop located in Navarre, OH.
These cases feature a high quality 2" low density foam which allows the case to hold precious artifacts of various sizes without movement.
From its durable 1/8 inch double strength glass to its lockable, brass plated claspes, every material used to create this detailed masterpiece is USA made.
