Have you seen the Ark of the Covenant? I seem to have misplaced it...

What did you do to support the hinges for the drawers?
This looks incredible


You installed the drawers first and then the mounts in between the shelves?




Here is a Thread I was doing on the build last year. It got archived

Your most certainly welcome. I really wanted to have a bit more in dept photos, but the but the photo platform on this board REALLY sucks.

Please keep sharing! My collection is tiny in comparison to some (especially @Kaptainmyke) and my wife still thinks I have too many. She is super competitive, so if I show her what other people have, then maybe... LOL. I Especially like the construction pics @BigRedOne1944

FWIW I recommend this to ALL of you:

I got my entire collection insured now by Collectibles Insurance LLC www.collectinsure.com no affiliation, just recommending. $100,000 protection in the event of fire, water, smoke, theft, transit, USPS protection and proxy umbrella coverage in the car and to/from my house to storage. It costs $450/yr for private collections and $1600/yr for Dealer protection which covers my collection as if it were inventory since I have a website and I sell items on ebay, and also covers transit and storage of client books or consignment as well.

@GAC Might want to talk to your agent. I did. When determining value under homeowners, they go for the lowest achievable replacement cost for the item. Meaning I could have had a 9.8 (enter book here) go up in flames, and the insurance company would replace it based on the item, not the grade. So if you had an Amazing Fantasy #15 at 9.8, and they can find a 0.5, that's what they're willing to pay out in replacement cost.

Your policy could be different, but I'd check the fine print before placing a lot of faith in a homeowners policy. Or, as @kaptainmyke recommends & I agree with, get a supplemental policy to cover the books.

Yes, I checked this also. My insurance company does not insure them as collectibles; they insure them as reading material.

Which might not be so bad, come to think of it. I have a lot of stuff I could never sell for cover price, not even close. I mean a LOT. I'll have to ask exactly what the basis is ... cover price would be pretty awesome I think, even with a bunch of silver and bronze age mixed in. I would get thousands just for all the reading material I've bought over the last 3-4 years.

Time to get that spreadsheet updated...
