First off everything you see is still a work in progress so please ignore the wires everywhere and the 35 half finished projects on the bench. It's been a year and 3 months since i've put everything in storage and 6 months completely without a garage so I have a major case of ADD and Catching up on projects to do.

I know it comes as no surprise to those here but what i thought might be enough shelves are already full (there's 6 more lanterns behind me on Regular "storage" shelves and 5 or 6 lamps too. Fortunately I"ve been here with you good fellows enough that I saved just enough room for one more shelf on top.

Click and then click again and the photo should greatly enlarge.

Being that I live in earthquake country I'm open to suggestions on how to keep these flying off of the shelves in the event of a quake. Right now I've got some 4lb test fishing line anchoring them...I've got the BQ on a hook with some bailing wire for added security.

Nice shop!  As a fellow earthquake prone member, I nailed/glued a thin quarter inch strip of furring strips on the open 3 sides of my shelves. We have frequent tremblors here, some major, and  I've lost none to falling so far. Aloha.

Very cool set up!  Looks like you might just have room for another shelf up top....

I have my Euro stoves along one side of my garage and most of my lanterns on shelves on the other side next to shelves for my Coleman/suitcase stoves, using maybe a third of the second side.  I need to do like you to help protect the lanterns and lamps with furring strips or the like.

I thought about this, did you put it on the face of the shelf, or on the "top where the lanterns sit?"

Does earthquake insurance include lanterns? It is a great looking collection but the height of the shelf from the floorScares me.
Not looking for anything. I have too much already, my wife says.

Yikes. Earthquakes vs lanterns on a shelf....
A tall face on three sides would help , but would block more than half the height of founts before I was comfortable. Fighting vibration and walking lanterns in lighter tremors. Keeping them on the shelf period in stronger ones.

The only thing coming to mind is a cable above each row, Tightly fitted (closed to minimum fit still allowing removal from cable) S-hooks could be used to remove individual lanterns , vs running the cable through all of their bails and having to remove the bail while doing a hula on a ladder.
A coated cable would be desired if just running it through bails.

To run cable instead of shelves would want a centerspan post , and clothspins or another method of stops/spacers between lanterns so they don't collide.

Fantastic Building!
Still a dream here. But your garage is inspiring none the less...
Not too shabby a G.P.A. collection either!!!
Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...

Nice garage!

Museum putty is one answer to the quake problem. Here's an example: https://www.amazon.com/Quakehold-88111-Museum-Putty-Neutral/dp/B0002VA9NA

Put a blob of it under each lantern and they should be secure for most tremors.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

On the top along the outer edges.

wow. what a set up. I too am jealous.
Clip the bail to the wall with an alligator clip and some wire. Mount a wire on the wall so the bail is held down.
Put a lip on your shelf for the moderate quakes. Fount anchors made from 1/2 plywood was an idea I had-cut a round hole for the fount to sit in. Anchor the plywood to the shelf. Line it with felt. With the plywood base and the safety wire I think it could withstand a strong quake.
I have quake anxiety. Lots of original glass.

I installed "galley rail" from home depot on my shelves and it looks really secure, but I haven't had a strong enough earthquake to put it to the test.

Nice garage shelves and good looking collection.  Erik, I can’t offer any advice regarding earthquake protection for your lanterns but the sign above the door is priceless!

Eric,  a buddy has open cabinets on a garage wall FULL of jars of preserves and canned Spaghetti sauces.   He had wood sides with "hooks" sized for wood doweling (could also be just 1X1 square...)  and NONE of the jars crashed during the '89 Loma Preita quake.  Simple,  basic, and not in the way in a major way visually.

I've done the same for my "rattle can paint shelf, and haven't lost a can of paint or bottle of glue.  That shelf is about 8 ft long and 9" deep.

ok, just went and ripped down some wood to 1/2x1/2 square and then cut some 5/16 dowels to make a railing. Still need to finish the end caps but I'll sleep a bit better now.

Ok you must have just moved in there or something because your garage is not cluttered enough. I like the rail on the shelves I'll have to remember them when I move. Oh and if you decide to you no longer like the Field and Stream tin with the ducks on I know a good home for it...😁
