A suggestion for a simple stand you can make small or large to fit signs, for table top simple, only slightly more complicated for free standing stand.

Made from 1x 1 1/2 stock you can get anywhere. No fancy joint for the base pieces, just make sure they are square to the vertical part (speed square) and screw and/or glue, or peg through the wide side.

Drill quarter inch holes (or 9/32nds for an easier fit) in the top of the base.

To display more than one sign, make the base much wider, then add another set of horizontals up higher, with holes for 1/4 pegs to hold the edge of the sign. Put in 2 to 4 holes about 3/4 inch apart so you can set the sign at the best display angle. Oversize hole makes it easier to insert pegs.

Use tape for a hinge if you want to make it fast and easy, small hinges if you want, but unnecessary. Quick, easy, light weight. Paint same color as your L shelf, voila. Done. Set the two legs at a 45 degree angle for use. Fold flat for transport and compact storage.

You could cut it out of ply, but easier to make with the suggested boards. Pine will do. Coarse finish just needs sanding before painting.

The wooden one would take more time and work.

@DesertRatTom thanks, but that's an easel-style. I need to be able to hang multiples, and have an idea in mind. but thinking I'll run it by @honesttjohn or Mike if I can get them out to my workshop/she shed. Also thinking I'd like to have a "Sawdust Saturday" one of these weekends, but if Ken doesn't hurry up and get some insulation in there, it will have to wait till next Spring!

@OutoftheWoodwork Barb, curious. Would a GOOD, all metal band saw work for you? I have a small Rikon which is identical to the WEN. Same saw, has Carter type roller guides, can resaw about 5-6 inch using a half inch blade. I use my Rikon all the time. Easy to just walk over, set the tension and make a cut. It is not a toy saw like most of them, but either one will do serious cutting with a good blade. Attached is a picture of the WEN, which costs less than the Rikon. Both anchor to a bench, either with a good blade will do a LOT of cuts just as well as a 14 inch saw. My Rikon makes very clean cuts. The blade is 72 inches long, so it won't last quite as long as a 93 or 105 inch long blade, but it's cheaper as well. Kindly let us know if this is what you're thinking about.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

@DesertRatTom I would have to see it, I guess. Your picture didn't attach. I know I don't want one with a plastic "body." Been looking on Marketplace and Craigslist, and I get a headache trying to wrap my head around them. May have to have someone around when I look at these, and explain the brands I'm finding, and rate them. I want one that I could use to make sharper turns/cuts; but of course, I'm going to have to have some instruction on how to properly use the tool. Last one I had (besides taking a spill or two) I had too wide of a blade on it I guess, when I went to cut something, popping it off the wheel.

Thank you. The healing is gonna be a slow process, Kaitlyn but it will. I just have to be patient. (NOT my strong suite, I might add, as Ken will verify )

Barb,

We use these with the tent for outside - and they can be adapted for inside use too. Get the hooks and you can place things however you want by the hangers. Grid Wall comes in all sizes and price ranges and they can be zip tied together or left separate. Just do what suits the occasion.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
