Ornament display stand.
Sep 14th, 2014 at 9:10pm
 
I had a challenge to design a simple ornament display that didn't use too much real estate and could hold a dozen units.
Here is what I came up with. Small brass rods and a couple of walnut rounds. All loaded (12 ornaments) and just under 12" circle of room required.

Good point I have a small Lazy Susan, and I am thinking of adding a small box to house extra product under the stand.
Maybe a round stand with a drawer, that should be a challenge.

You could find and enclose a small electric powered cake turntable and let it turn on it's own.  I think it's to nice to have everyone handling it so much.   Ebay @ $15 could be less.

Nice work   Thumbs Up

Ha Ha I had the same comments when I brought in from the shop. The first attempt had only one level,  only held six ornaments, so second level was added to present a dozen choices. Here's hoping the presentation loosens purse strings at the Xmas Market next month.

The stand hooks are 1/8" brass rod, the ornament hooks are ornament wire cut to length.
