As with a lot of you, my collection of collectable and fine wood slingshots is forever growing. My boot box is really getteng too small. Also I don't want any of my "high end" frames getting scratched. I would also like an easy to access display that I can show and still be easy to access when I want to shoot. And visible to visitors to my home.
Im trying to find a display a style that will suit my home, This is a corner of my dining room and is typical of the style of my home.

Anyone???

Thanks!
I really like the display case idea. That's currently what we're using for our creepy curio and small taxidermy pieces.
That's am amazing collection of frames that you have there!

We live in a small house, with no basement. My polebarn is not heated yet, nor very organized. Our work area (where the computer is) is pretty cluttered. I need to provide a space for my collection, but it hasn't hit me on the head yet, as to where to place them.

Nice displays above!

I posted this a while back, it's the back wall of my office by the door where I can just grab whatever catches my eye and walk out with it. My catchbox was about 10 yards from the door, till a tree landed on it. I'm gonna get around to replacing it one of these days, really.

That's a pretty cool collection!

Hmmm...these are all awesome displays.
I'm thinking of maybe doing a shadow box/case display with a glass front. Nothing too fancy, as a matter of fact I'm thinking something rustic or antique looking. Maybe framed?

Here is what I came up with, and it's wife friendly!
I bought this from a thrift store for 20bucks and re wired and re painted it. It has some other things in it for now to add to the antique look, with NO girly wife stuff

I am not a fan of nasty smelling things but something neutral isn't disagreeable. Your sweety might want to read the article in the link, especially if you have kids. Namely #4.http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/44258903/ns/health-health_care/#.Tlr3UnNWZq4

One of my favorite sayings I heard is; "science isn't better than nature." We have a nose for a reason and smells tell us something. If it can be smelled, negatively, perhaps we would need to do something about it instead of covering it up. Not saying you and your girl are dirty, lots of very clean people I know like the "extra" smells.
