A coworker asked me if I wanted to try and make a an award stand for a heavy metal object called a dynamometer. One of their division’s distributors passed a sales milestone and they wanted to give them this gold painted version of the real thing. I like a challenge so I spent a couple evenings in the shop coming up with this quadrapod. The wedges basically hold the thing together. A leather strap keeps the leg pairs from spreading too far.
Wood is walnut with a shellac first coat followed by a couple coats of polyurethane.
I was happy and so was my coworker. Hope you like it.
