building and painting display stands

Big doings in the Paganini garage yesterday and today.

The small display made from the dowel and the drum hoop is close to done!
I went to Southern Lumber and had round base and top pieces cut to order. George found a way to mount the drum hoop on the dowel. He mounted the curved forks which look amazing.  I went this morning to the hardware store and bought paint in a nice pecan color which is complementary to the blue of the bags (thank you Principles of Design training). The pieces are almost all painted.  George has brilliantly strategized a method for the whole thing to be disassembled for storage (brilliant!)

The door display has the most critical part completed - George made a mount to hold it upright. He cleverly curved the edges to match the frame on the mirror. Next - sand, fill holes, paint, cover up the doorknob hole.
