It isn't finished yet but wanted to show you all the display stand hubs made me for my long skinny black wax Colonial tapers! Yip, he finally got busy and made the display stand, a cute prim wall shelf (home use for hanging my own tapers on), and a stove board! I've been so happy and doin' my Happy Dance! I still need to distress it and put those floor protectors on the bottom legs, (why I have it on a scatter rug, lol). I don't have the shelf or stove board done yet but will post pics when I finish them. Oh, and my camera was giving me absolute fits when I took the pics, too bright and distorted. But I fixed them the best I could so please overlook the bad pics.
It holds 32 hanging tapers (what I have on it now) but I can double/triple them if I need to, so it would at least hold 64. (These are the real wax ones, lol, not the faux I had on the tutorial.) The long tapers range anywhere from 13" to 16" long, are hand rolled then dipped and grunged. The smaller tapers range from 8" to 10" and are hand dipped 40 times.
I just love these long black n grungy Colonial tapers and will be making some in Burgundy and Gold. Can't wait to get my cute wall shelf finished and hang some on it! I think hubs idea for the display stand was awesome and would be really handy for shop owners or those that do craft shows. As you can see they're simple and easy to make. Hope this inspires you with some ideas!
