book case 1.jpgcc1.jpgcc2.jpg
Living in New Hampshire it would not be a good idea for me to display solid wood instruments in a rack, and I hate to have all of those cases lying around. One case is an old clock and the other is a book case. Both over 100 years old. Both have had the glass replaced with UV filtering acrylic. They are both on inside walls and neither receives direct sunlight. Humidity is controlled with small open containers of distilled water during the winter, and naturally in the summer, (a real wood case is very good at self regulating humidity). It also keeps the dust and dogs away.
I have posted these before, but it seems to be relevant, so here they are again. It works for me.
