When choosing one of our display cases you’re going to have to choose between a laminate and wooden veneer. Laminates are man made material adhered to wood, this gives them the ability to come in a much larger variety or colors, textures and wooden grains. These tend to be more resilient than natural wood. With choosing laminate for your display case you can expect consistent coloring and pattern, low cost, and a lower risk of dents and scratches. Veneers are natural wood with different stains to alter the color, then a layer of clear coat to protect the wood and make it shine. Wooden veneers are going to be softer than laminate, making it more susceptible to scratches. With natural wood changes in grain, pattern and color should be expected. Different moisture levels in the wood will affect the amount of stain the wool will absorb, This brings up the risk of inconsistency throughout the case. These distinct attributes contribute to the natural beauty and personality of the wood, making veneers preferred by many customers.
