Well i hope everyone has a good idea of what globe is what. I hope everyone has an idea of what a hull globe is and a gills.

This month we are going to do shelves. Lets see the shelves everyone has built to display there collections. I don't care if it's 1 globe or 100 i want to see them. I have seen lots of collections and everyone has some good ideas.

If anyone needs help posting you can send the pictures to me and i will post them for you.

Here's a shot of part of mine.


I wanted my shelves to be deep to help protect the globes from accidently getting bumped into.
I used standards and seperate brackets. For the shelves themselves I used two layers 1X6's and 1X12's. The bottom layer has the 1X6 in back and the 1X12 in front. The top layer is staggered in that the 1X12 is in back and the 1X6 in front. I plowed a channel in the bottom side of the top 1X12 for the wiring to run in. After figuring out the spacing I drilled holes for the wiring for each of the 26 fixtures. For the wiring iteslf I used 12 gauge drop cord. I mounted 1/2" deep junction boxes to the shelves, then wove the wire up into the first box, then back down into the channel and over to the next box. I left enough slack sticking up at each box to make the electrical connections to the fixture. Next, I mounted my globe rings. Then I used simple porcelain light fixtures like you might find in an unfinished basement.
Each row of globes is on its own switch, but they are on the same circuit since 26 light bulbs don't draw very much current.

I'm very happy with this set up with one exception. Capco globes qon't clear the porcelain light fixtures. If I were to do it over I would use the smaller diameter junction boxes and light fixtures. They are harder to find, but they are available.

I've experimented with different wattage bulbs. Most of my globes have frosted 26 watt bulbs. A few have 41 watt bulbs. I've tried the small diameter flood bulbs. They don't last very long. I figured clear bulbs would bring the lolors out better. They do to an extent, but the filiment can cast a shadow on the lens making you think the Jarvis Jinx has struck. I've tried the cool white screw in flourescent bulbs. They looked ok in metal body globes but looked terrible in glass body globes. I haven't tried st soft white flourescents yet. I suspect I'll like them better.

I decided to build my shelf into the wall recessing the globes for display and the need for only brackets on one of the shelves. The room was all new construction paneled with wood from a barn we took down. Recessed ceiling lights with dimmers provide light shining down on my globes and I still need to add the same underneath the top shelf to light the lower row of globes. Fitters will also be added to keep the globes in place.

Here's my meager contribution. It's a free standing shelf made of 1x12 everything's dado'ed glued screwed filled primed and painted and hardboard in the rear to keep it square. The light plates are counterbored for the sockets and a router trough for the wiring. The bases are not fixed to the shelves so they may be moved for whatever reason.

This is how I display my globes. I am forever changing them around when I get a new one in so I wanted to have a fast and safe way to do so. The one draw back is that they are not lighted.


I use 1/2 AC plywood and cut strips at 30Degrees


I usually have two openings in the strip so I can take the globes out.


I keep saying I'm going to paint them but never get around to it. Richard

Now i know we have more globe shelves out there! I don't care if you have 3 common globes or 200 killer pieces. We want to see how they are displayed. Basement, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, garage?

I will post mine in a couple of days.

Keep them coming!

Here is mine, this top shelve is made from 1x8 with a trim lip around it. I made it to look like a fireplace mantle using 1x4’s on the sides and the trim boards from home depot to deck it out like an antique mantle. The mirror is one of the 6.00 ones for doors from k-mart. This makes it look like the TV is not floating and gives the globes a good high place to be shown off in the house.

I only light the center globe “Tioga” with the small under cabinet lights from home depot.
