I have been fortunate enough to have found some pretty good relics over the years. Displaying them is always a challenge and a chore. The results usually end up looking like some relics layed flat on a bed of cotton, or put on a crowded shelf.
I want to interact with my finds. view them from all angles, be able to hand them to someone in conversation in a manner that will not damage them, but allows closer investigation of the relic.
So I came up with "Relic Racks".
Relic racks is a system of displaying your finds that is completely customizable by you.
As you find new treasures, you can simply add it to the rack system held in place securely by a 3d printed relic holder.
The holder material is translucent so the focus is on the relic, not the display.
Arrange the rack with whatever relics and order you wish.
The rack has two usable tee slots and the relic holders simply twist in and lock where you want them to be.
Relics can be mounted in the top slot for a more vertical appearance, or move it to the front facing slot to add another level, dimension and depth to the display.
Bullet stands can be rotated so they are not all in the same orientation. Displaying them off center and at an oblique angle gives the display more of a three dimensional feel. The relics seem to float which adds interest.
Once the relics are in place on the rack, the rack can be placed in it's shadow box in a matter of seconds.
The shadow box is hinged from the front, so no need to remove it from the wall, simply lift the door,
and drop the relic rack into the brackets inside the shadow box.
Take the rack out of the shadow box and set it free standing on a table or desk.
There are even 3d printed wall brackets that allow for you to mount the rack directly to the wall in a frameless manner.
This is still in development. So I want all of your thoughts on this. What other types of relics would you like to display with Relic Racks?
Leave me some feedback.
