View Full Version : Cheap n cheerful picture stands

I'm doing some trinkets for a local tourist shop and I was looking for a way of displaying them. The hooky bit glued to the back of a mirror has always seemed a bit dodgy to me and I couldn't be bothered to make a frame...not at that profit margin.

I remembered a plate stand my mum had years back, and a bit of maths later, here's the result:
Quick, incredibly cheap, and pretty useful for displaying things. Included in the file (x3 & v8 versions) are 50mm high; 100mm high; and 200 mm high sizes, which covers a reasonable range of sizes. All tabbed for 3mm material

Here's them in use:
The large piece is a 3kg(!) (that's 6lb+ for you 'merkins) slab of marble. That's about the upper weight limit though, and I certainly wouldn't risk it anywhere there's a chance of it getting knocked over.

Very clever.

Good job. Thanks

Not clever really- I nicked the idea. Bloody useful though...I've found myself carrying a couple of sets of the smaller sizes around in my pockets...found several more uses for them.

Darren - Thanks. I have a few things that this will be great for given the size.

Could just be that it's late (or early, depending on your perspective), but I'm getting thwarted attempting to download this file. I get redirected to a page that implies the domain is available for sale. It looks perfect for a wooden card project I'm doing, so I'd love to avoid the math if'n I can:)

Not the time, I tried to get the file too and I am being redirected to the same site....

Tried it several times but no go..

Apologies. I'm currently on free hosting, and that must be one of thesiide-effects.
