This is a stand for a door with painted panes that is going to be on display at the Art Walk in Grand Haven, Mi in Sept. I had volunteered to help my friend , Maria, with an Art Prize project that would have been 30’ long, but she did not get accepted an any venue so she will have some of the panes in Grand Haven during that same week. I will also have to make hangers for the smaller windows to be suspended in the shop’s front window.
This was quick project today made from one 2×4x10’. You could say it is a tuba4 project!!
I had to make the uprights fit the rabbets on the edges of the doors. That was the only close cutting needed. The rest is made on the fly. I did a little tapering and round over on the parts to make them user friendly. I may have over done the screws but I never like a project to fail- especially if the public comes in contact with it.
I mortised the uprights into the bases, added 3 screws, a dowel and glue. It should hold!!
The uprights are 25” long as are the base feet.
It is unfinished on my part because her husband is going to paint all the pieces before they go on display.
