  1. Hello all, I have renovated an old cabinet to fit my fossil needs... I am itching to put all my fossils in it, but I need somthing to line the inside of the drawers sothat the fossils don't roll around when I open or close the drawer. Any suggestions? And also where I might find such a thing? I have seen grip mats, but most are too small, my drawers are about 60cm by 150cm. Thank you.
  2. New display cabinets

    For quite a while now I have been looking for some type of cabinet to display my better/favorite specimens. Curio cabinets and the like tend to be out of my price range. Even the used ones. My wonderful wife found some used glass retail cabinets for sale. They were so cheaply priced that I bought 2! They are 6 feet (1.82 meters)long by 3 feet (.9 meters) tall and 20 inches (50.8cm)wide. Now I can display some of my collection without worrying so much about dust, dirt, or accidental breakage as they were sitting out on an open shelf before. I’m super excited and had to share! The pic shows one of the cabinets. I’m temporarily using this one as storage as I had to get rid of the shelf I mentioned to make room. I’m working on the other one first as my main display. I’ll post some pics of it when I progress a little further and it looks more presentable.
  3. I showed a picture of this cabinet last year? I was just getting started loading it up. Im now running out of room. But dang! Lookin real good to me!!! and the largest balanus I ever found. Measures 7 inches across on the bottom. and low and behold, another box of fishy's! Just wish I had more room. RB
  4. Not much to spare

    I finally picked up the display cabinets from my sister's place. The last of my parents legacy for me. I barely had enough room to pack these into my tiny place. My bedroom is piled high so as to make my living room more displayable. Now I have the tedious job of filling them. The larger will be strictly for the ammos. Corner one is for other niceties. My ammo cabinet, waiting on my having some time to fill. Corner unit...a work in progress. I will repost when cabinets are filled.
  5. Display lighting

    What is the best way to light my display cabinets up?
  6. I wasn’t sure where to put this so our keepers may need to move thisnif it’s in the wrong spot. I have a Harbor Freight blast cabinet that I don’t need. It is less than a year old. I just needed something flat for my microscope. This works well with magnifying lamps and head worn magnifiers. It is worth $100 and I’d be interested in trading for a nice ammonite if anyone is interested. PM me if you want to discuss. I’m in Dallas, TX so local pick up is best but I can ship it if needed.
  7. Lab Upgrade

    The prep lab got a bit more crowded today. I got sick of fighting abrasive and dust migration so I went and got a blast cabinet from Harbor Freight. Ran the air lines to it and hooked up my dust extraction. It it needs a light as my lens light causes a horrid reflection on the glass. I also need to fabricate a shelf to rest fossils on as it is a bit taller than I desire. But, I like to tinker.
  8. I have a lot of small fossils, both vertebrates and invertebrates, that are starting to clutter around my apartment in junky plastic bins and bags. It is starting to get out of hand. I need something that is good for on a budget, but has the capacity to hold a large number of fossils and keep them safe. I do not want to display them, just keep them organized. I like the idea of having a wood cabinet of shallow drawers. I have been on the search for a decently priced wood map cabinet for a long time now, but I am coming up short. All of them are either far too small or way to expensive. Further, I have heard that certain woods like oak can release harmful acids to fragile fossils, and I have quite a few fossils that are very thin and prone to deterioration. Does anyone know of anything that I might be able to use for a decent price? I don't have a lot of time to build my own set. I do have a circular saw, drill press, and a sanding wheel, but if it takes more than a weekend to build, it is not worth the time to me. But I am open to anyone offering some plans to build a simple storage solution. Thanks!
  9. So I filled the drawers in the display cabinet that I built last year and needed more room. I was going to go fossiling today but it was a little too rainy so I started on a new cabinet. It is real quick and dirty. This one is much simpler and made from scrap I had in my shop at work. I am partially done but still need drawer pulls and label holders and to tweak some stuff. I think the bottom piece needs to be trimmed down. So here is the first cabinet I made:
  10. I hope there are some LED lighting experts here? I installed LED strip lights into my fossil display cabinet. Went to turn them on and only a part is working. Where I cut the strip and added the angle clip and then more light strip is not working after that first clip. The only thing Ive not checked is to make sure its positive to positive and negative to negative, but im sure that's not it. Im now wondering if the strip has to be in place exactly before closing the clip? I thought this was going to be easy? Any helpful suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks RB

  12. The prep room

    Tonight I started to build my new workstation for prepping fossils. I picked up a blasting cabinet at our farm supply store. I removed the heavy duty gloves and sandblasting gun and adapted some other stuff to attach the shop vac . I need a few pieces to add more led lights to the inside
  13. My Ever Growing Collection

    Here's my collection so far. It's kind of a mess until i get my hands on another display case (it's in the works). I like to keep the "nerd" vibe throughout my living space. Haha I really want to isolate my really nice pieces into their own case. All in good time though. My Mammoth tooth found in the Peace river. Handmade antler & oak display Peace river shark teeth and turtle bits. Fox hills Ammos and Baculites in altered shadow boxes Trigonocarpus sp. Mazon Creek in altered plastic container Peace River display board w/leather backer (box coming soon) m Mazon Creek cabinet My "main" display case (mazon creek, fox hills, white river, green river, peace river and a lot more) Let me know if you guys want closer shots of anything. Enjoy!
  14. I got a question that I'll like to seek some opinions. I'm a fossil collector and my method of storing and displaying my fossils is to use stack-able aquarium tanks to reconstruct the concept of a display cabinet. So far I had this up for about 1.5 years already and so far it is stable. However, I'll like to seek everyone's opinions on my method for displaying and will like to have some advises and tips, if this method is safe enough for the long term. Thank you.
  15. New Blast Cabinet

    I was checking out EBay Thursday the 3rd and came across a blast cabinet. This cabinet has gloves, air hose kit, good light and a pack of viewing pane protectors. The best part is the price was $104 with free shipping. I was going to build a cabinet for larger specimens but will not have a lot of spare time this year, so I ordered one and it arrived today. Posting a few pics.
  16. Please help me name this piece of furniture. Is it a chest, a cabinet, a case, a cupboard? What is it? This was inspired by an antique piece my father found in a workshop of a retired architect. He refurbished it into a showpiece for his bride; for it was a family heirloom. Shrek thought it would make a great display (?) for our fossils. My father is a master carpenter, and has made many custom pieces from imagination alone. Our dining room where this (?) will go has a grandfather clock, curio shelf, dining table, and large bookshelf all custom made of cherry by my Dad. Yes, I'm fluffing my feathers. So here I am, excited as all get out for my almost completed ? The original sample was much deeper, had the large drawers at the top, and a solid top. We have larger fossils to put in deep drawers, but most of our finds are micro fossils. Consequently, we had him put the large drawers on the bottom. Also, my idea was to have a glass top: a glass top that never needed to be removed. I wanted to be able to slide the top drawer open and put our latest, greatest finds in whenever we wanted with no fuss. After a quick month goes by, here you see the almost completed ? I am to go over to his workshop on Sunday to discuss the glass top. It's not a cabinet, a cupboard, a case, a highboy, a caisson, a chiffasomething (found on thesaurus). So, what is it? Thanks for looking.
  17. Recent Display Upgrade

    Here is my recent display change. I was going for a "museum" look. Unfortunately with this display, I can only show the main pieces until I figure out a way to display everything else and have it all still match with what I have set up now. Until then, they are tucked away in their cabinets!
