    Hi all.
    I would like to show you guys MY colletion too - this cabinet was orginaly with wooden shelfs and no lights installed - after I bought lights I went to this glass company and ordred 9 shelfs in glass - he told me he could have the shelfs ready for me on Monday or Tuesday, so I gave the glass dude some extra buckz......and he said..."OK...come back in two hours" LOL and I did, and got the shelfs today :) $ is power.
    Hope you like it.

    Thanx a lot Rico - the 360 is actually one of my favorites, I think the color is called grigio alloy or something, its very nice.

    Nice Curio Display Case. It looks shelves are angled & not slide-ins. Did you have to install shelves in groups so as to make clearance?

    Yes, you're right - the shelfs are angeld and had to be installed one by one after the cabinet was built, orginaly there was only 4 wooden shelfs in it, so I had to drill 36 new holes for the plugs.
    The total cost for this cabinet was: 3000 Norwegian Crowns (430 USD)

    That's an excellent price for this quality Curio Display. I used to build cabinetry - prior to humongous increases in lumber prices, in '83, I built a beautiful hutch (of my own design) for my folks. Shop let me do it on my time... with Materials at cost. Including glass doors, it was $86.00 - again, Materials were cheaper then & also note Labor was not included. Even then, same hutch would have retailed for $6-800.00. More now, just like your Curio which you already got your money's worth out of. In short, "you done good."
