This is a stand I made for my son in-laws wood carvings. What’s shown on the stand is only a small portion of his work. The picture were taken with a cell phone so they are not the best. The stand is made from some walnut boards he had stored in a shed he used to own. It was pretty dry and had a number of worm holes and grooves in it. It’s a very rustic piece. The sides are angled in at 3 or 5 degrees, I can’t remember. It also slopes 3 to 5 degrees on the front face so the shelves get narrower as you go up. It’s a knock-down stand. The pins in the ends of the shelves hold it all together.

I really like the shelf. Walnut is one of my favorites. I also really how you cut “windows” in each side. Great visibility for your son-in-law’s display.

It makes a wonderful stand for his carvings. Nice work, Kent.
