How to Build a Food Display Case


There is nothing more tantalizing for a hungry customer than seeing a food display case of mouth-watering dishes your bakery shop or restaurant has to offer. Having a food display case improves not only your reputation as a hygienic business, but enhances the customer’s desire to taste those delicious dishes. Buying one can set you back financially, but making one can save you money if you're on a budget.

Things You'll Need

  • Plexiglas
  • Band saw (or circular saw)
  • Sandpaper
  • Methylene chloride
  • Piece of wood (same width as the Plexiglas)
  • Decide how big your display case is going to be. This depends on the quantity of food you desire to put into it.

  • Cut the Plexiglas sheets to the correct sizes using your band saw (you also can use a circular saw); you will need four sides and a top.

  • Sand the edges as flat as possible.

  • Put them together in a box-shaped form.

  • Use methylene chloride to seal the five-sided box.

  • Place an appropriate-size piece of wood for your base.

  • Place the display dishes inside the food display case.
