Default Display stand for signs

A friend who owns a craft store offered to display (for sale) some of my hand routed signs if I could come up with a small display stand. Here is the result. The top sign (with my "Wood Art" brand) is a fixture on the top of the peg board. The peg board is screwed to a timber frame which is hinged to a "swing out" trestle.

Hi Keith,your signs look almost too perfect to have been done freehand.Did you mean you used a CNC machine? not that there's anything wrong with that,great job either way I also like your display stand,simple but effective.James.

Hi James. Thank you for your kind comments. No, I don't use a CNC (never even seen one!). All my signs are freehand routed.

Beautiful work! You put my block lettering to shame! I also love the NZ saying signs. Saw the display on fb, just got over here today to be able to look closer at the work. Really amazing work, Keith.

Thank you, Barb! I've only got into freehand-routed sign making quite recently, in the hope of supplementing my income now that I've retired from my day job. I have been following Eric & Dave Rhoten for some time, and pretty much follow their techniques although I'm finding a few variations that suit me better. Having just discovered your contributions on this forum I'm looking forward to learning from your obvious experience, too. I love your work!
