D-Day Presentation June 6, 2019

Recommended Posts

Here is a photo of the wooden uniform stands that I have been using since 1980.

The heads are from Webster, male, flesh tone.

On the original design of the stands I attached the upright 2x2 to the base.

Recently, Don of Hutchins Custom Woodworking helped me redesign the stands so

that the uprights and the bases detach so they don't take up as much space when

traveling to a presentation.

The shoulders are made of a 3/4 by 3 1/2 attached with a carriage bolt, so that the

board can be moved vertical when traveling.

The heads are attached using a one inch dowel glued to the top of the upright, the

dowel is tapered to fit the taper of the inside of the head.

All the wood is pine to make it light weight.

I painted all twenty of the new redesigned stands with a satin black.
