Clarinet stand was conceived from a vintage Emerson fan and a clarinet with case . I made the piece then decided it needed to stand on it’s own. The size was challenging at 6’‘x 12’’ x 24’’ . With 2’’ thick walnut I cut to a taper and doweled togther the small frame. It is small but powerfully effective to enhance the fans marketability and appeal. I screwed the case down to the walnut frame and was taken by it’s finished product . A sophisticated ,playful kinetic work of Art It even runs and oscillate. All this and Heaven too.

Definitely a cool use for a licorice stick, really like that small but very strong looking walnut stand you made
for a base. With the cool weather we have not been having, these are probably selling and getting used
by happy customers. Thank you for sharing.

Refreshing and delightful . . . I would be proud to give it a prominent place in my home!

I get these old fans from a buddy who owns an estate sale company. We get the first look at things.

There is only one thing worse than a clarinet. . . . . Than would be two clarinets.

Honestly at my local gallery they are literally flying off the shelves. My local paper did a story on me so my status is rising. The Clarinet stand was sold yesterday . I put it in the gallery on Thurs.
