Thanks, guys! The logos are small, about 3 inches and maybe 1/4 inch thick. I originally wanted the logos cut into the front of the case but I have messed with 3 CNC guys, 60 days, 75 emails and that pic is all I've seen. Never met the guys and all 3 are local. I have lived in NC for 7 years and everything I've tried to do with locals turns out kinda like this situation. So I don't mind paying to ship.lol Heres' a pic of a crude prototype of the case.
Unfortunately, if you are looking for hardwood (or any kind really), someone will have to plane or re-saw thicker stock to come up with a final thickness of 1/4 inch. More overhead unless whoever you use decides to buy the stock from a supplier that has already created the thickness...and the overhead will be built in to the cost of the material.
At least that is the way I see it.
What will the final finish be - paint or stain? That could make a difference since mdf is available in 1/4 inch thickness and paints well.
Here are some pics of the display case finished and ready to assemble. I worked with David Falkner on this and I could not be happier with the case. David took my mediocre idea and really made it something to look at. This case will definitely get looked at, it's being built for Lionel's headquarters. Take a look!
