Stand for Antique Statues
We were asked by one of our good customers to make something so that they could display their antique statues and this is what we came up with for them. Each piece has its own section and is held in place by Velcro. This allows them to be easily removed for dusting etc. while still being held in place to prevent them from accidentally falling. Each box has dovetail joinery for long life. The timber is Giho “not sure of the spelling” and the back board is Narra ply with a Narra molding . The last photo shows how they were nailed and or wired to a piece of plywood.

Very nice, but could you clarify whether the statues are held to the back board with nail or wire, and just the individual section is held in place with Velcro; or, whether the whole section, including the statue is held in place with Velcro? Sorry to be so dense.

Hi. The sections are held to the back board by screws. The statues are held in the section by velcro. This will help to prevent falling out if accident or earthquake etc. There are no nails or wire used in this new construction. The depth of sections is 90 mm.

Beautiful stand! Great idea on the velcro. Like the dovetails, it will surely last as long as those antique statues. Well done!
