We designed and built this Art Deco display case for a Lionel Train Collector to exhibit a rare salesman’s case for “Lionel OO” gauge trains. The “OO” gauge trains were only produced from 1938-1942. The logo is from 1938 Lionel catalog
The logo was executed in Cherry, Walnut, Curly Maple, with Ebony details, in a CNC process we call “Three Dimensional Inlay”.
In this process, 1/16” deep recess is routed in the walnut background for each of the elements, which are then epoxied in place. This creates multiple levels and overlapping layers.
