These pieces including the jewelry cases, black pedestals, stone arch, and cash wrap were part of a build for a retail store that sells amethyst and other decorative stones.

It took 3 months to get it all done.

display 1 is actually a pair of drawers on full extension glides with glass fronts and the top is glass. This way displays are set from the front and then simply slide into the case. No trying to arrange the items from behind.

I will have to go by this store to show you more details. This project was really fun mixing wood, glass, and crystals with cultured stone.

Fabulous! The displays look very professional. I don’t think I’ve ever seen geodes that big.

I have never seen geodes as big as those under that stone arch! I wonder how much she wants for them?

Your cabinets are first class Motthunter.

Thanks for the comments. Always nice to hear nice things. The geodes in the store are nothing compared to the warehouse. They stock over 20 tons of geodes. There is one in the store that stands 8 feet tall and another that actually weighs 1 ton. I think that the ones inside the arch sell for around 4,000 for the pair. I have more pics of the pieces, but I don’t know how to post them here.

to embed a picture into a comment or blog you have to have the picture posted somewhere else on the internet (ex. Photobucket).
Then, put the “image location address” in your posting, with an exclamation mark before and after the address. Voila
