This bat display was constructed from soft Maple and finished on the bottom with an ebony dye and finished with 2 coats of water based satin lacquer. The top had the clients logo laser engraved.

This was designed for a client that needed to display bats at trade shows. One of the key aspects of the design was that it could be broken down quickly without the use of tools and misc hardware. Our solution was to use magnets. The display can now be set up and broken down in seconds!

As far as the ebony dye goes I simply mixed some transtint Ebony/Black dye with some alcohol and sprayed it from a gravity fed spay gun. Pretty much as simple as that:)
