Figure, Spacing, etc. Cases

Miscellaneous full-size cases are listed below. These cases all have one vertical bar dividing the case into two. Some other cases for the same purposes have no such bar, and are listed elsewhere. Each case below links to a descriptive page that shows the actual box layout, the various sources that illustrate the case, and often a link to an appropriate layout of the contents. Note that some other two bay cases are listed as Upper and Lower.
