  1. Hi all I thought I would do a “show us your handmade display of stands” . I think it would be beneficial to collate all the wonderful display stands in one thread. If you do contribute to this thread it would be really useful if you can give some top tips and some pictorial info of how you made it. Also please add some pictures of the beautiful fossil , mineral or any other object you display on them. If you have already made a post and perhaps you would prefer to add a link instead. So if you have got some handmade stands out of wood, drift wood, iron, wire, acrylic , stone or upcycled
  2. I think it is worthwhile to fashion or acquire stands to enhance the presentation of material for display. Why spend time and effort on a piece to have it rest unceremoniously on a shelf or be stuck in a drawer? Place it in view, if possible, for all to enjoy! Here are photos and comments on the cobbling of two very simple stands to support Mammoth material recently received. The smaller tusk fragment is full round. The larger fragment, a half-round, is split on its long axis. The large piece was the subject of minor prep discussed in the Forum's "mailbox finds" topic.
  3. I was wondering what kinds of stands you guys use for displaying mammoth teeth? But teeth belonging to juvenile mammoths ?

    Display stands

    Hi after seeing a few posts on here for display stands @snolly50, I figured i would try my hand at it I went more steam punk industrial if thats a thing haha. Used a couple pieces of wood I found in the garage (spruce) stained it with a jacobean stain. Bought 1/4 round steel bar and bought a pipe bender of Amazon. For the bear paw I used a bit of metal wire aswell and furniture felt pads for the base :)....its not perfect but I'm happy with the result. I know the femur is off center im waiting for my wife's cricut machine to come it so I can make a label for it!
  5. Special thanks to Ptychodus04 for making this custom stand for my Megaloceros giganteus antler. I love it!!!
  6. Aside from our favorite auction site, can anyone please recommend a good site, or store for buying acrylic risers? I’m looking for longer ones around 12 inches in length. Height so they stack.
  7. I know it’s been talked about on here for making displays for smaller specimens. But what about larger specimens? What do you do when you have a full length tail section or when you have a full skeleton? I look at the displays in stores and museums and I cannot figure it out. I can weld and all that. But what I cannot figure out is how they get the metal bands wrapped so tight around the bone. The bone obviously has to sit into the main frame before the bands get wrapped around certain areas. How do they do that without damaging the specimen? The only thing I could think of was the material ma
  8. In April Forum member @Sagebrush Steve posted an account in the "Fossil Prep" section detailing construction of display stands for some of his collection. He employed a slightly different approach and interested readers would be well served to view that post as well as this one. I do believe that the use of attractive display techniques can enhance the "decorator" value of fossils as well as allowing them to be viewed in a manner far better than resting on a shelf. A short while ago I posted a prep series on a pair of Halisaurus jaw sections. That post concluded with discussion
  9. Ok, been working on this for quite some time. Trying to find the right size stands for all your fossils can be quite difficult im finding out! So,, I took some pliers and started bending up a snargle smargle storm!!! Now Ive got most of my smaller fossil crabs in stands. Woooooop!!! Woooooop!!! Oh, and a picture of what it looked like without stands too. Top shelf only. RB

    Fossil Display Stands

    Hey guys, I have got some new Dinosaur fossils coming in soon and I have noticed these black metal display stands which looked really nice. I was thinking of using them as my stands but I just did not know where to get them from. Would you guys know anyone who sells those stands? Thanks for your help! Here is something similar to what I am looking for.
  11. I went onto Ebay to try and find some 'moon stands'. For the life of me and cant remember what they are called but there is a kind of fossil stand that is shaped kinda like a moon shape where you can put in an ammonite and screw the bottom and top to hold it? Im not sure if im making any sence? Anyone know what the heck im talking about. Here is a picture that ive drawn to give you an idea. Not the best drawing, but I drew a little ammonite in the middle that is being held in this stand thingy. Thanks RB

    Shop Upgrade

    The shop got an upgrade this week. Mount making just got easier with a new 2 burner propane forge. This will allow me to shape steel for mounts and stands much more efficiently than the old coal forge I was using. I can also modify/make specialty digging tools now! The options are limitless...
  13. I had a fossil display at the Rochester Gem & Mineral Show this past weekend and I was asked "Where do you get all your display stands from?". When I worked for World of Science Inc. and Natural Wonders, I bought ALL my stands and bases from Jule-Art inc.. I spent $25,000-$30,000 a year on acrylic displays and any specimen I sold in our stores over $50 came with a free base or stand. They have a ton to choose from and they pack them extremely well and ship quickly. On some of the beveled bases I applied black or burgundy felt so the specimens wouldnt scratch the acrylic and it looked good.
