I made this out of maple and walnut. I sanded it until it was extremely smooth and as of yet, I have not applied any finish. I really like the Self Framing Patterns from Keith Fenton and Sheila Landry Designs. I plan to do the hummingbird one soon as well as the Santa Claus one. The stand is made of walnut and is a modified version of one from Steve Good at Scroll Saw workshop.

That looks just great. I really like it on the wooden stands. I am working on my second one.

Thanks so much Sheila and Jerrell. Jerrell, you can get the pattern for the stand at SteveGoods ScrollSaw workshop in the free pattern catalog. I had to modify this from 1/8 to 1/4 and add a protruding curve at the top for a good fit. I also had to elongate the legs so as to accommodate the projects thickness.
