The best cabinets have also a locking storage and drawers in the base. Some manufacturers will even add additional shelves and shelf support, to make the storage of any items in the cabinet simpler and easier. The wood used to make the shelves has grain finishes, and can then be polished to give them a feel of elegance. A glass display cabinet made of oak, mahogany, or any other hardwood can last for longer, and is more appealing. The wood is stronger, and even after many years, the cabinet will not have aged much.
There are many styles of cabinets for displaying collectibles and other items. There are some that have glass panels and glass shelves. Others are made of fine wood with wood or glass shelves. Yet others are made with plastic, faux wood, steel, or a number of other materials. If the collection is a valuable one, like fine china or antiques, the collector will probably want to have a cabinet with a lock.
Some cabinets are designed specifically for certain collectibles. There are die-cast display cases that are designed to showcase miniature die-cast collectible cars. NASCAR fans who collect miniature versions of their favorite NASCAR drivers' cars can enjoy their collection in a case designed either in a stand alone version or a wall mounted version. For such a collection, glass shelves are usually desired so that all angles of the car can be seen and appreciated without having to take the car out. More handling equals more risk of damage or wear. Depending on the collectible, even natural oils from handling can depreciate the value of the collectible. Coins and stamps are especially susceptible to surface damage merely by handling.
