  1. I was wondering what you all recommended for displaying your collection. My collection includes both rocks and fossils. One of my concerns is I have several pieces that weigh over 40 pounds so I needed something very sturdy. In addition, several of my pieces are about 16 inches in height so I need something with adjustable shelves. I prefer the style of an older looking antique bookcase. I have found many online but I am not sure if they are study enough without seeing it in person. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
  2. I’ve been working on a display centred around dinosaur eggs and fossils of young dinosaurs. I’ve so far gained quite a bit and have some more fossils on the way for the display. I will work on getting photos of the individuals pieces for now I’ll leave everyone off with the whole display currently. I will update this as time goes on.
  3. I had heard of these display options, but had yet to pony up and buy some. Found a deal on three 8 x 11's and I'm quite pleased! It was great fun to arrange the fossils in interesting patterns. I did one for my England Jurassic Coast finds, one for Florida Peace River and Venice finds and then a Texas Cretaceous Tiny Stuff. I like how they take up some nice space in my cabinet!
  4. I bought some unprepared fossil fish and was wondering how I could display them. Also I am needing some suggestions on what to use to harden the fish and matrix around it.
  5. Hey! I was wondering if anyone knew any good places to buy custom stands/displays for bones or how to make them. Thanks! (sorry didn't realize this was fossil id and I don't know how to delete it)
  6. 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
  7. I bought these brachiopods and didn't think about how they are so small that you could hardly see them when they are on dislpay in my shelf. If anyone knows how to build a magnifying display I would aprecciate it. I have know idea if this is possible but even if it's not I appreciate your responses.

    Display

    Hi. Still waiting to get out and hunt. In the meantime I threw this together. It was inspired by other displays I saw on the forum. Enjoy for now can’t wait to be in a creek!

    Question on Fish Prep

    I have a questions on how to properly prep Fish fossils. I collected the attached fish from the green river formation near Kimmerer WY a few years ago. I have not done anything to the sample, I collected it, returned home and displayed it. How does one properly look for other fish in the matrix? I can see very small parts of other fish in the sample, but do not want to do anything to the sample until I get a better understanding on how to prep fish fossils. Thanks for the help

    T arm display stands

    Hi guys, Would like to ask where I may be able to find these types of stands? I believe theyre called T arm display stands or something along the lines of that. I saw it on a forum member a few years back but not sure if theyre still active so was wondering maybe some of you know where to get it. Btw, im in Australia so prefer to get here due to shipping costs though not ruling out international sellers either. Thanks!
  11. Hey guys so I got this display case a few years ago and was going to use it recently when I found that the plastic film is no longer clear but is a bit cloudy. Dont know how it happened but was wondering if there was any possibility of getting it cleaned? Thanks
  12. 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.
  13. Does anyone know of a source for a small magnifying box/case where I can display small micro fossils? Thanks in advance.
  14. Hey all. I have a19 inch diameter Nautiloid I am trying to display. I was thinking of something like a plate stand like my wife has holding her very large plates. Problem is this nautiloid weighs close to 25 or so pounds. Yea, I drug that thing out of NSR. Any ideas on where to find a good display option. As also, thank you in advance for any feedback.
  15. Strange streamers on the shoulders of this chicken sized feathered dinosaur were probably used for display. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencenews.org/article/dinosaur-fuzz-rods-feathers-first-southern-hemisphere/amp

    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!

    Proboscidean Ulna

    Since the Peace River, FL has been running deep and fast for the last few weeks I decided to spend some time prepping and making a display for several proboscidean bones found in the spring. After posting the bones for id here when they were found and doing a bit of research on my own I believe what I have are pieces of an ulna from either a Mammoth or Mastodon. There is the possibility of Gomph, but Dr. Hulbert has informed me a couple of times that Gomph specimens have not yet been found in the Peace River. So first up is a photo of the four ulna sections along with the other

    Display stands

    Hi all I been playing around with the idea of a mini museum. When I see a really cool mounted skelton I always like it when the museum adds a little model or diorama next to it to give your an idea of the animals look and their landscape. I thought I would like to add this idea to a stand for a fossil. I choose my tip of a tusk from a straight tusk elephant. It is not the best looking fossil but really rare in the uk. I made the base out of a tea light holders that I made, some copper wire and modelling material. I will add the photos in order of making it.
  19. Theres no way I'm the only one, but I think a fossil display with models incorporated take display and immersion to the next level. The creature alongside the evidence it left behind, makes such museum like feel in appearance and enhances the appreciation and wonder. Heres a thread to post any fossils you have on display alongside a model, statue, or toy. Here is a display from my collection of one of my favorite prehistoric creatures postosuchus alongside a giant 10inch+ chirotherium pos/neg footprint.

    My 1st Riker Display

    I had to post my first riker display that made for my collection. It’s amazing to think, a little over a year ago I was throwing the teeth I collected in to a glass jar. Thanks to everyone at TFF, I have come a long way in my addiction. A couple teeth came from @Praefectus and the rest I purchased over the COVID months. I was extremely fortunate to have won a contest that Doren (Caldigger) was running. The prize is the first tooth top left.
  21. Parkinsonia parkinsoni (ammonite) Jurassic, Upper inferior Oolite Bridport Dorset. UK 6.5" The first photos I took a few years ago did nothing for this unique specimen. I found it difficult capturing the details and still think they could be better. The ammonite has many chambers preserved in calcite that glow when backlit. Calcite crystals can be seen growing inside some of the empty chambers. Fossil, mineral, crystals, art, science, love Happy collecting.

    Graptolite Display Ideas

    I have been wondering what to do with the graptolites I have found. Currently they're scattered around the house, which I think is a sign to put them up for display. Please... help... the graptolites are taking over my house! How do you suggest I display them?

    Display Ideas - Hell Creek

    Hi everyone, I'm making a display of Hell Creek Formation for a Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth I'm getting. Though it's a replica, it's a really pretty one, and making an equally gorgeous display for it would just be fun. I envision this. I'm wondering how I might sculpt the hills and ridges. I thought about cutting cardboard boxes up into shape and hot gluing them to a wooden plinth. I would then paint it and cover it in sand to replicate the features. My only concern about that is how I would carve the features of the ridges - those fine details - into a box. I

    Where to buy a fossil display case in Europe

    Hi all, A couple of years ago I built up quite a collection of Moroccan mosasaur teeth, which, unfortunately, are now lying in various boxes wrapped in plastic. I'd really like to put them out on display, however haven't found the right way to do so. Preferably, I'd be looking for something like an old-style museum display cabinet, where the teeth would rest on red velvet (or felt, foam, etc.). Now I came across these display cases on one of the big auction sites today, and this really seems to meet my needs. Unfortunately, though, they're slightly more expensive than I had imagined. What
