  1. I'm trying to identify the polished fossil material in this Georgian English snuffbox, circa 1760 to 1820. Is it mammoth ivory? Walrus? Wood? Something else? The material is set in unhallmarked sterling silver. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Adam
  2. Acid Free Fold Up Boxes?

    Does anyone know of a good and affordable place to acquire some boxes (like jewelry boxes) that are made out of acid-free materials? I really need to start moving some of my finds out of plastic bags, as I feel that I don’t really know what I have actually collected, given that they are not visible.
  3. Compressor box

    Afternoon folks Well finally moved into the new house with a brick shed/garage (aka my new workshop) yay! What I need to do is soundproof the compressor so to reduce the noise levels a bit as it will be in there with me, no real option to move it outside etc. I have been looking at numerous options and I need some advise on what is best, I have a load of mdf from an old wardrobe and was thinking of boxing it in with this then adding thick foam boarding to help reduce the noise. I know I need to look at ventilation etc in boxing it in. Or the other option I was looking at was making a box from Knauf sound panels and adding rubber matting or wood to the outside an extra layer. So out of the two option above what do people think would be the best option. I don't want to spend loads but I have around £50 - £75 to spend. If someone has a much better option than my attempts above please let me know or even a photo or two to give me some more ideas. Thanks very much guys Gary
  4. Anyone know of an Aussie supplier of Riker mounts? I'm looking at getting some overseas but the shipping is killing me.
  5. Staining fossils

    I took my dad out to collect some carboniferous fern fossils from a coal mine tailings heap. He wants to combine the fossils with his woodworking, perhaps making pendents or embedding them into recesses in boxes as decorative embellishments. Some of the fern fossils are slightly darker than the matrix they're in, but for the most part they're not as visible as we would like. Is there any straightforward way to stain or treat the specimen such that the fossil portion stands out better visually from the matrix? Ideally, some sort of stain that would have a greater effect on the fossil portion than on the matrix. Or (and I fear this is the case) would it be a matter of painstakingly hand-painting/staining the fossil?
  6. Fossil Cases

    Hello everybody, I thought I would show everyone my various attempts to put fossils inside things. I dont know why I like making these sorts of things, but I do. The first picture is of one of the first things I ever made out of wood.This was when I was about 12, before my mom let me use power tools. So it is all made of 1/4" plywood and cut with a handsaw. It is really gap happy and ugly now that i look at it, but it does have a glass window and a piano hinge to hold the lid open. It is empty right now, and i might remake one like it now that I know how to do more sophisticated joinery. the next two pictures consist of my pride and joy, made at fifteen (im 16 now) out of pine boards. On this one i got to use a circular saw.I still used a lot of simple techniques and butt joints, but i think it still does what it was made to do. It holds 6 12"x16"x2" riker boxes. It cost about $50 to make and $100 for the boxes. In the third picture you can see part of my shell collection and my(small) fossil collection. Still working on geting the drawers all full. The last two pictures are of an experiment. If i decide i like it, ill rebuild it out of better quality wood.. It is made out of 1/2" and 1/4" plywood and brass hardware. The purpose is to hold small ammonites. My newtable saw makes a difference in prescise cuts, so im conjuring some other ideas as well. By the way, tomorrow after school ill be visiting geological enterprises for the first time. I have lived in ardmore my whole life and collected fossils for most of it but had never even heard of this place before. Wish me luck on finding some good stuff! I really like making things out of wood, so i thought id share. Thanks for reading!
