This is what I changed to - used LED tape for lights.
That still looks great and most importantly it looks sturdy. Glass shelves just look like an accident waiting to happen. We had an earthquake less than 10 years ago. I still remember worrying about my antique chinahutch. It is old but did not collapse. Your shelves are very bright. Good job.

Thanks everyone. I’m happy with how they came out. Painted 2x8s with very long lag bolts and mounted to the walls.

move banged on the walls and shelves to see if anything would move and only a few needed a bit of museum putty

a short time ago bottles_inc posted pics of his very nice lighted display cabinet, that inspired me to post some pics of mine. This display was featured at the door at our club's Show & Sale a few years ago next to the ticket table in Oakland, NJ.
Right now, I have it installed in our bedroom.
Hope see others displays at home...

Here's my display,
Bill! That's a fantastic display! it would keep my attention for an hour, or more! Thanks for sharing and thanks for your feedback on mine.


...buhhhht... this weekend my girl friend and I did some display shake ups some cleaning and redisplaying. The Porter & Ales went out to the front room on the wall...

...and I decided to bring out most of my flask collection(that I could manage to unbury and locate). the GF decided it was time to feature them in the "jewelry box"
