I buy the rod at a big box store and make them myself.

Great!  Thanks Bert.

Oh.  Do you apply a finish to help prevent tarnish?  If so, what are you using?


Thanks again.  Have a joyous day!

How in the world did you bend the ends of the 1/8" brass rods so nicely.  My one attempt didn't turn out nearly as well.

Frank, the brass can be purchased from many places online as well as big box stores. You can usually find it in the the welding dept. look for brazing rod. Or some of the big box stores have a small area (display) for metals like threaded rods, angle iron, tubing etc.

Yes, it's primarily made of brass, it may contain a small amount of other alloys or metals but not enough to matter for this type of application.

The stand worked a treat, lots of product in view, small footprint, and the storage box base holds another dozen or more ornaments and the small cloth gift bags.
The church mice were a hit as well.
I epoxyed the lower rods in place and left the top ones removable, made for easy transport and storage.  I put small finishing nails in the rotating base and the church mice fridge magnets ride round and round and end up in a customers hands. Wink

Nice display stand, however I found one at Hobby Lobby for about $9. So I bought 4 stands for miniature birdhouses and xmas ornaments. "If one looks hard enough someone has already created what we need." But the truth is: You had fun and used your imagination.
Good Job
