I have found a good source for quality clear plastic display cases that fit my Ethereal Maze Puzzles very nicely. The medium size case is about $3 and is perfect for "Escher’s Playground". The large size case is about $5 and is for "Twisted Symmetry" or "Minotaur’s Castle". The medium size case is shown with the maze with the red ball, and the painted maze is in the large case.

I put some links for purchasing these display cases on the main page of my Ethereal Maze Puzzles Shapeways Shop:

http://www.shapeways.com/shops/EtherealMazePuzzles


You can use them to get one of the cases with Free Shipping. So if you have already purchased one of my mazes, and want to display it as a work of art, this is a nice display case to have.

The medium size case is about 2 inches wide, and the large case is over 3 inches wide.

Enjoy

Those are very nice, but I think that this would be cheaper :lol:

It looks like the 2" case opens on one side only.

Is the 3" composed of two c-shape parts that slide together? (Like this: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=17411&p=213519)

If so, have you seen them in smaller sizes? (Like this: http://puzzles.baxterweb.com/images/ful ... G_6711.jpg)

Thanks,

Skarabajo.

Both of these cases are composed of two c-shaped parts that slide together. The bigger one is a little different then the one in your link. It has some interlocking tabs where the halves join to keep it nice and square.

I have not seen any smaller cube shaped displays. But I have seen some that are shorter. They are a square box about 1 inch high and 3 inches wide and deep. They could be used to display several smaller puzzles. They look like they use a snap on lid, instead of c-shaped halves. See them at the link below:

Hope that helps
