Here are a few sword stands I’ve made. All for myself- thus allowing me to forgive the flaws such as a totally botched finish on the table top one. I still have no idea how I got it so wrong, but rather than sand the piece down I decided to “distress” it a bunch… yeah, that works. I did the same finish on the rests and it came out right. I’ve made a couple more of the vertical wall mounted type but no good pics to show. And there’s the standard design seen for sale everywhere, but with sturdier wood.

Welcome to LJ’s

Looks good from here

Most of the time we learn from our mistakes so they become pisitives.

thanks guys.
Monte- ‘Tis very true what you say; if I didn’t learn from making mistakes I might never learn at all.

BT- I found LJ around the same time you posted a link to it on SBG- very fortuitous. I’m trying to soak it all in and settle in slowly, and I am qucikly realizing I need better woods
