Our Shelf Displays/Heirloom Cabinets are hand crafted with the same quailty
as any of our Knife Displays. As with any Dorris Display, you get the Danish oil finish which is wet sanded between
each of the 3 hand rubbed coats. This process is more time consuming than a spray on "production" type finish, but
we prefer to stay with the old fashioned, hand rubbed procedure because it produces a glass smooth surface with all the magnificence
you expect to find on a high quality piece. Below are models of varoius designs. Each style can be customized to suit
your collection, and your specific needs. Shelf spacing is customizable or can be built with adjustable shelves
(as shown on the cherry cabinets below) to arrange items differently as your collection grows.
All Display Cabinets come with double strength
glass in the doors for a thicker, more stable panel. Your choice of wood... Cherry, Oak, Maple, Mahogany, or Walnut. Contact
us if you would like a wood type not mentioned, we will check on the availabilty of that particular species for
Cabinets have shelves for whatever you desire to display. Shelves can be made so they are adjustable to allow you
to customize the distance between them. Door pulls can be made from antler or custom door pulls are available
as well in a variety of styles and materials. Concealed cabinet hinges will be used on your custom cabinets so they
are not seen when viewing your collection on display.
Metal keyhole shaped hangers are installed on the back to allow for hanging the cabinets
on a wall if you so desire. Cabinets that are large in size will have holes drilled and countersunk on the inside top and
bottom for hanging. They look very nice hung together as a "matched set". A matched set is what we refer
to when we install the door pulls/hinges on opposite sides. You can then hang together with a small space between the two
allowing for a section of the wall to be seen between the cabinets creating a very nice look in the room.
Some deeper models will hold Working Decoys
such as Mason Decoys.
