One issue I have always had has been how to light the display cases for my fossils. I really didn't want to be bothered with hard wiring the lights especially in light of the fact that I may change the configuration in the future. I tried LED lights that were battery-operated but they gave off too much glare. I found some battery-operated LED lights that have a translucent panel that diffuses the light and actually has three different brightness settings. Below are some pictures. I'll also try to post the link to the Amazon listing for the light. Tom https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B083S7SKL6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Hi everyone! Well, the time has come to show you what my fossil display area looks like! The two cabinets were gifts from my mother-in-law, the two side tables with shelves and the bench (which has a storage area inside) and the ammonite artwork were gifts from my husband, the linocut prints are by the extremely talented @Bobby Rico, and the Burgess Shale toys and under-cabinet lights and labels were bought by me. I put as much information as I had for each fossil on the labels, as well as an explanation of how I acquired each fossil so many of you may notice your TFF names on the labels The four empty shelves will be for displaying Viola's fossils - that'll be a project for the summer, so when that part is complete I'll update this thread with additional photos. But for now, please enjoy the little tour of my basement fossil area: The whole area: The shelf that has Precambrian and Cambrian specimens: The cabinet that has fossils from the Ordovician to Carboniferous Animals: The cabinet that has Carboniferous Plants to Oligocene fossils: The shelf that has Miocene to Pleistocene fossils: Thanks for having a look! I'll tag a few people who might be interested in seeing these photos: @caldigger @Nimravis @Tidgy's Dad @FranzBernhard @Wrangellian
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
