My daughter is into rubber stamps and ask me to make a shelve or two for
her collection of rubber stamps of various sizes. Thought I would check
to see if there are any sites with some plans before I started any
designs of my own.
Rubber stamps? Odd thing to collect. I live very near Cleveland...
home of the Free Stamp... the world's largest rubber stamp. Maybe it
would interest her. I've seen it up close and it's a wonder to
I don't know of any specific plans, but one thing you might want to
consider is a glass or acrylic door/cover over the front of the shelf.
SWMBO doesn't like dusting, and has informed me that it might be nice
to eventually have bookshelves with some kind of covers, as this would
decrease dusting time. OK, sure - after the bed, the coffee table, the
blanket chest, the rocking chair...
Just something to think about.
Yeah, since posting that I did a little looking around. I suppose I
was thinking in terms of "DUPLICATE"... "PAID"... "VOID"... "AIR MAIL"
etc. That's why it seemed odd to me. Decorative craft type stampers
didn't occur to me.
While I am sure your daughter would appreciate hand-made shelves, there
are also a lot of companies that sell them. At least you could look for
ideas to build your own. Places to look:
Here's a website with a picture that's similar to what I started with and
Here's a site that has suggestions that may be of help:
Why not do a Google search? Type in rubber+stamp+storage and see what you
come up with. Your daughter may want to help with this. I'm assuming she
makes greeting cards with her rubber stamps. You may need extra space
because she'll want it before long for all those rubber stamps she can't
pass up. LOL. She may even want to think about using an un-mounted system
which would save her a lot of room. Here is a site that will show you what
I have been using the last couple years:
Good luck and I hope she enjoys this craft as much as I do.
