If you purchase one of my cabinets please email me pictures of your cabinet and what
you house in it. (Confidentiality guaranteed !!) The most recent images are at the

The cabinet above was a special order by a gentleman in NY. It started out rather simply as a 24 tray cabinet with doors. But as it
progressed, he requested adding the Queen Anne style legs and the brass label holders on each tray. And so the project grew. Several
of the tasks were completely new to me, so the project took quite a while, but he was extremely patient and understanding through all
the delays, preferring workmanship over speed. The final dimensions were 26" H x 13" W x 12" D, and it weighed almost 38 pounds.
This was a special order cabinet for a collector in the UK who wanted the trays configured to hold slabs. In addition, he asked for locking
doors, a glossy finish, and carrying handles (albeit more decorative than functional). The first five images were provided by the buyer, and the
last is one that I took before shipping it. (The first two most accurately represent the true color.)
This was a really fun little cabinet to build. It was ordered by a gentleman with very specific size requirements due to storage, to
house his collection of tetradrachms. The actual size of the completed cabinet is 8-1/2" W x 9-3/4" D x 5" H. Each tray is 5/8"
thick with 14 recesses of 1-1/2" diameter.
This was another fun build....24
trays, each 5/8" thick, with various
recess sizes on the trays, and with
This is basically just a miniature version of one of the standard cabinets, to hold a collection of Lincoln cents...plus a few Native American
arrowheads. The first image is one I took before shipping it, and the last two are from the owner.
A gentleman contacted me asking
if I could make him some
mahogany trays to replace the
flimsy plastic ones that came with
A collector contacted me about converting
an antique microscope slide cabinet to
house coins. The original cabinet contained
twelve stacked 1/4" thick trays, which I
replaced with six trays of 1/2" thickness.
The same collector also asked about
repurposing an antique mahogany cigar
cabinet to hold coins. The cabinet originally
held three trays for cigars. I was able to
modify the cabinet to hold six trays for
coins of varying diameters and thicknesses,
while retaining the original workings of the
cigar cabinet should he ever want to
convert it back to its original use.
The cabinet above was ordered by a gentleman to display his collection of Colonial and early US coins. He shared with me an inventory of
what he has in it as we both share an interest in this paticular area. And let me just say....WHAT A COLLECTION IT IS !! The cabinet has 18
trays designed to hold slabbed coins, and locking doors. I especially love the grain pattern in the panels I used for the doors. He requested
a customized brass name plate for the front which I had made at a local company that does trophies and awards.
A collector contacted me requesting I make some trays for him to display his collection of Fugio coppers. The images above
are of his display at the 2015 American Numismatic Association Convention held in Chicago, August 2015.
This cabinet was built for a friend who also happens to be a part time coin dealer. It has a total of 24 trays, each 5/8" thick, and
three special trays with an open surface to place unusual or oversized items. The cabinet stands 17" wide and 41" tall with the
legs, and weighed about 60 pounds.
This cabinet presented me with the
opportunity to try something I've wanted to
do for a while now....namely, develop a
solution for storing slabs in a cabinet.
Previously, the solution was to make flat trays
where the slabs layed flat, which was a very
inefficient method of storing them as it ony
allowed about 10-12 slabs to fit on each tray.
The drawers for this specific cabinet each hold
27 slabs, only because the trays had to be
slightly smaller than in a normal standard
cabinet. This was due to specific overall size
restrictions for the cabinet the buyer had with
regards to storing the cabinet.

This was the second cabinet purchased by this customer from Argentina. It is the cabinet on the
right, in all three pictures. Both have 18 trays, with doors, and trays with various size openings.
This was a custom cabinet for a gentleman who wanted both standard round coin spaces, "open format" trays to display items in a
free form manner,and also storage for slabs. The left most photograph shows the drawer which allows for storage of 30 slabs, in a
vertical arrangement. (You can see another cabinet with these slab drawers in the "A.F. - NJ" images a few entries above.) Each of
these drawers is approximately 4-1/2" high, and will hold slabs from the three major slabbing firms, NGC, PCGS, and ANACS. Slabs
from other companies or "do it yourself" slabs may fit as long as they are not thicker or wider than any of the major firms' slabs.
Here is a 15 tray cabinet with 15 inch wide "open format" trays lined with red felt.
The first two images are by me, taken before the cabinet was shipped. The last one
shows the owner's cat inspecting the cabinet.
