A few weeks ago before the show we did with Robert I built this stand to hold my cutting boards. I was having problems showing them off to sell so I came up with this stand that hooks to the sides of the tent. and the great thing is it is only 4” wide and takes no room in your tent. It also splits in the middle so you can put it in the truck. It is pretty empty in this picture because at the show we did with Robert I sold most of my boards. Every live edge board I had sold. I had made a few for this weekends show witch was a bust. I guess you can’t pick every show that’s good. This was suppose to be a chili Cook off what a joke that was. But I was only out $35.00 and at least we make that plus alittle more but when you don’t even brake a $100.00 that is a bad show. After doing over $1,100.00 at the last show. Perhaps this stand idea will help another vender that sells Cutting Boards.
Thanks Dennis

I like this idea! I do not make cutting boards but my carvings are the same thickness. This would work really well.

Your display stands are great! They max the use of space, simple and effective design, Laura and Dennis. You can actually use all 3 sides of your booth ! I would like to modify your design a little for displaying (horizontally) my walking canes if that is okay with you? It’s one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas! Your boards are beautiful!

Like the stands very much, but just have to say the cutting boards are great. Someone will be a proud owner.
