Made this for my grand-nephew who is on his 6th belt in tae kwon do. The display rack—which is where he will display his previous belts attained—is made of tiger maple and measures 21” x 12” x 2 1/2” and finished with Howards wax. The nameplate is copper with his name etched and inked in. Thanks for the looks and comments.

A well made display rack for his belts. Hope some of that beautiful maple will show with the belts on.
I wear a black belt with pride also, around my belly.

I like it, especially the maple. I’m going to show this to my youngest Son, he’d like this project. He earned his recommended black belt, then injured his knee and stopped.

Excellent piece, gorgeous grain with the tiger. Id love to see a pic with the belts installed, I’m not sure if they’ll sandwich between the slats or encircle them. All of my belts are just in a bag in the closet, along with all three kids belts, maybe a rack is in order???
