Here’s a unique project I started back in spring 09 after I received an aniversary award from my employer in the form of a 3/4” thick peice of acrylic with the certificate sandwiched in the middle. It didn’t have a great way of displaying it however, short of setting it on it’s edge and hoping it didn’t get knocked over. So, using some leftover 6” wide white oak baseboard moulding, I came up with an idea. The result was the stand on the right in the picture with three. Others at work liked this idea and I got a couple requests, so I made a few more of them, two in cherry and two in walnut, just have a variety and experiment with other woods. Since I routed the moulding myself, I had the tooling to make these in the different woods and still get the same results. I’ve included various shots at different angles, and with different contents, to demonstrate other uses for these stands.

Thanks! They were fun to make, although I spent a lot of time hand-sanding between finish coats. The results were worth the time spent though.

It turned out to be a great way to use up left-over molding, and thankfully I was able to make more in other woods since I did the routing myself.
