The Port Colborne Museum just ordered our very first custom designed display case for our museum in an 1860s house. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Justin worked with me to design a perfect mix of modern and traditional to fit our Museum's aesthetic. He was very knowledgeable and professional and easy to work with. We look forward to working with Obsidian again for our next display cases.

Justin was excellent to work with. He was able to get our project done within our limited timeline. We considered doing an IKEA kitchen, but working with Justin was so much simpler. He took care of the details, and his price was very comparable to IKEA.
The owner Justin was awesome to deal with. He really took his time to work with me on the design that would work best for what I was trying to accomplish. As a sports memorabilia collector, I knew I wanted the best showcase to display my items. I absolutely love what we came up with and would highly recommend Obsidian Manufacturing to any other collectors or even retail outlets out there. Top notch for sure!

When it comes to showcasing historical artifacts and precious exhibits, University of Waterloo Environmental Science Museum is a name that resonates with prestige and grandeur. Among its many prized exhibits, the T-rex skull stands out as a testament to the prehistoric era’s awe-inspiring creatures. And when the University of Waterloo Environmental Science Museum sought to elevate the presentation of this iconic artifact, they turned to none other than Obsidian Manufacturing.

Obsidian Manufacturing, renowned for its craftsmanship in creating custom glass display cases, was entrusted with the task of designing and crafting a display case worthy of the T-rex skull’s significance. This was no ordinary project; it was a blend of art, science, and engineering.

The collaboration with Obsidian Manufacturing began with a series of consultations. The museum’s curators and exhibit designers worked closely with Obsidian’s team to ensure that the display case would not only protect the display but also enhance its visual appeal. The T-rex skull, with its intricate details and massive size, required a display solution that was both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Obsidian Manufacturing’s design team embarked on a meticulous planning process. They considered factors such as the weight of the skull, the optimal viewing angles for visitors, and the lighting conditions that would best highlight the fossil’s features. The challenge was to create a case that would be unobtrusive, allowing the T-rex skull to be the star, yet strong enough to offer the necessary protection.

The result was a masterpiece. Obsidian Manufacturing crafted a minimalist, yet sturdy glass display case that seemed to disappear into the background, allowing the T-rex skull to take center stage. The case was constructed using high-quality, crystal-clear glass, ensuring that visitors could view the skull from all angles without any distortion. 

The collaboration with Obsidian Manufacturing is a testament to the power of combining expertise in museum curation with cutting-edge design and manufacturing. The T-rex skull exhibit stands as a symbol of this successful partnership, drawing visitors from around the world and offering them a glimpse into the prehistoric past, beautifully framed by modern craftsmanship.

In the world of museum exhibits, where the presentation is as crucial as the artifacts themselves, Obsidian Manufacturing’s contribution to the museum’s T-rex skull exhibit will be remembered as a benchmark in design excellence. It’s a reminder that behind every great exhibit lies a team of dedicated professionals, committed to bringing history to life in the most captivating way possible.
