Stepping out of my box building comfort zone. :)
A new customer out of California had found me here in Texas by my business page on facebook and had inquired about making him a bell stand, he mentioned that he was having a difficult time finding any woodworkers in his area to build this for him. So I was glad to help him out.
I had never made one before and after google searching gathering ideas I ran across Woodshaver’s in which gave me some general ideas on my build. I used mortise and tenon joinery along with dowels for the angle bracing.
Everything was transpired via email which included measurements, drawings along with pictures of the bell. With the measurements the customer gave me this is what I came up with on my design, the wood used for this project was Mahogany.
Once it was complete and in the customers hands he responded to me on facebook letting me know that it worked out perfect and showed me a picture of the bell sitting in the stand in the last picture of the project.
Thanks for viewing.
