Knife Display Stand

Afternoon, all.

I’ve always had an intense fascination with WWII. Several weeks back, I mentioned in passing to my girlfriend that I’d always wanted to start collecting WWII memorabilia, but just never got the ball rolling. Sure enough, on Christmas morning, what did I find under the tree? A really cool replica of a WWII M3 trench knife and M6 sheath. God, she’s a keeper.

Anywho, I threw together a quick stand for it so I could display it proudly in the living room. It’s made out of some 1/2” scraps that I found laying around. All very rudimentary joinery, just held together with glue. Stained with a dark walnut stain.

This also gave me a chance to get better acquainted with my shiny new Grizzly band saw, which, in my uneducated hands, is like driving a Ferrari. =D

Thanks for looking!

You know, this is a great project! I have some knives that would be nice to display like this.

Good job!

I’ve been trying to find a way to display my Grandfather’s Marine Corp Ka-Bar that he wore on Iwo Jima. I think I might have to try something like this. Thanks for the idea.

Cool display stand for your treasured knife. Creative use of scraps and like the stain.

Have your say...
