Oak Bell “Tower” A good friend and his brother were each given a special commemorative brass cow bell by a long-lost relative in Switzerland, and after several years of not having a way to display them, they asked me to design and make display stands. The heavy leather belt was starting to dry and distort, so they wanted it displayed in a hanging mode. One other caveat; they wanted to be able to remove it without undoing the cumbersome buckle. I came up with this oak stand with a half-lap slip joint at the top, so to remove the bell, you just lift up the center cradle and slide it off. The stand is about 29 inches tall and 12 inches wide, finished in spray poly.
