Globe Display - Sun Nov 05 2017 05:52 PM

I finally got around to building my second barn wood globe shelf with what I believe are all original ad glass inserts.
There is one Sunoco globe I done yet have so I put the Amoco in there for now.
Likely moving sometime in the next couple years. When they find their permanent home in my life you won't see the plugs. But for now I don't want to cut plugs into the wall in this house.

I'm using 40 watt LED's in them.

The only really problem with the design right now is the cutouts for the ad glass is sized and cut specific to those lenses at those positions. In the future I'll have to come up with a plan that allows me to move the ad glass around or change it out to a different size if need be.

P.S. awesome pair of black T 13.5" lenses in that box. Need a wide body mild glass globe.

That's a great idea, incorporating the matching ad glass with the globes!

Those LED's are nice, and as I understand, you don't have to worry about overheating like the ballasts for fluorescent lights. Would a long one worked for all three?

Looks great!

Hi Nicole. Uhm, I suppose you could use one long one if they make one long enogh. but in this case the shelf is 59" long and about 39" center to center of outboard ad glass. Would take a long light, not sure if they make it and I certainly wanted the light to be even at each glass.

Thus is what used. 9",
