We recently had a client, Richard Folks, contact JIT Companies regarding a personal project he was working on. A plumber by trade with D&R Plumbing Inc., Richard also had a unique collection he wanted to display. After discussing the scope of the project, it was apparent that he had a deep passion for his collection and wanted it to be displayed in true Las Vegas fashion. After all what two things are synonymous with Vegas? Well, that would be gambling and prize fights and this is what Richard’s collection was all about.
Gambling on a Fight
Some people collect stamps or baseball cards or a variety of things and most are never really displayed for others to enjoy. Richard collected a series of poker chips that were part of the many prize fights that took place in Las Vegas over the years. He had a grand vision of what he wanted this to look like and it was not going to be a weekend project. Employing many types of services to bring the project to completion took time and research on Richard’s part and it was apparent he was not willing to compromise on any element in the fabrication process.
Tru-Vue Glass Displays his Collection
His final concern was the type of glass to be used and he reached out to Tru-Vue and JIT Companies for the answer. The detail in this project is extraordinary and some of the fine air brushed paint details would have been missed if any other type of glass would have been considered for protection due to unwanted reflections. The Ultravue laminated glass that was provided was the crowning touch to this impressive collection and display. The glass that JIT provided was waterjet cut and then the edges were seamed to ensure it fit precisely into place. Eliminating any annoying reflections and providing a pleasant viewing experience for all to see; Richard clearly won this fight and it was our privilege to be in his corner. Nice job Richard!
Next time you need help on a project and want someone in your corner, give JIT a call or send us a message. You’ll be glad you did.
