The Big Donation 2009

The raffle committee for the GSBF Convention contacts me about a donation for the 2009 convention. They said they wanted something big and would catch the eye. Something that would attract people to buy raffle tickets. I told them I would come up with something. This was a pretty simple design and I just wanted something big and different.

I wanted the mid leg stretchers to go around the legs and show in front of the legs. I had done that on the Shohin stands I had built years back. I also wanted Japanese flared legs and the cracked ice feature. Not bad for simple. The whole stand is from Alder.

I was happy with how the legs came out and the detail with the stretchers in front of the legs.

All finished and ready to donate to the GSBF Convention 2009.

Stand was 28″ x 18″ x 5″
