My doughter could not warm up to the red stand I had made for my wife and here is the result of the change I made to please their taste.
It is the same stand design as the first but the finish is a red first coat with a second dark brown finish coat .
Every one liked this when I presented my doughters at Thanksgiving dinner and all kind of ideas came up as to what food could be placed on them.
BTW turkey dinner was great !!
I hope it floats with you LJ’s and happy Thanks giving for you in Canada and Columbus day for you in the USA !

If the first one got you out of the blues then this one should have you singing. A great design, perfectly matched to the plate. High gloss black would be good for your next one; that would be class.
Roast beef here, gobble, gobble to you.

Thanks Gene
Yes this got me going again and I will try one in gloss black and ROAST BEEF and YORKSHIRE PUDDING would look good on this ,maybe a gravyboat could be done based on this design to go with the meal .
When I have it done I will send you a invite to join us for dinner .

Keifer, I jst saw your RED one, and I have to agree with your daughter – this one is much nicer. has a more balanced tone to it

Glad you like the color but I ask is it a generational thing or a general trend ?
I agree that the balance is good but Gene suggests gloss black , even darker .

Great design I agree with all the comment so far. You ask what to serve in it seen as it has a asian look about it how about sushi or a good stir fry

black would work ok for this, but personally I like the warmer tone of the reddish brown. add some color to life.
