The few farmer’s markets I’ve sold at, I’ve always felt like I need a better way to display my stuff. Typically I’d just lay it flat, and it bugged me that people had to come and look down at what I was selling, instead of being able to see them from a distance. I woke up from an unexpected nap (was laying on the floor with the baby while he rolled around, then woke up 15 minutes later to him crying ), and had this idea in my head, as well as the motivation to make it.
I had ordered a large amount of the Medium Maple Ply when I first got my machine since it used to be cheaper, and haven’t had many uses for it, as I like the look of Cherry and Walnut better for most things. It was a no brainer to make this stand out of the stack that I have. I really like the more plain stand look, it helps make the keychains stand out!
This was inspired in part by @BigBlueMark’s way of using layered materials for a base, and in fact, I only ordered thick clear acrylic because of his designs, so thanks to him for being an inspiration! For the hooks, I need a slight revision because they can slide front to back, but otherwise they work really well.
