Homemade display stand
May 3, 2013 in How-to
I made this display stand from a letter opener (80 cents at a second-hand store) , a Basswood base (79 cents at Pat Catan’s), some cut and stick automobile rear view replacement cardboard mirror (Walmart for about $7.00), gloss Black spray paint and Future floor wax (Walmart, once more).
I simply drilled a hole in the back of the base. Inserted the letter opener, and bent it to an approximate shape.
Once I had a good fit, I removed the letter opener, sanded the base, and painted it Black.
After the paint dried, I brush coated the base with Future and cut the mirror to fit,
The mirror is affixed with two sided tape (it comes in the package).
I hope this is something everyone can use.
