These would be simple to make but I don’t have a router and not looking to get one Does anyone know of a source for some simple wooden stands similar to this picture that would fit 1/8" draftboard?
Would you consider getting a table saw?
yes, table saw. much faster
“etsy sign stand” on google.
All the world’s info in your hands in seconds, it’s crazy.
And probably more.
Wow, the other evans got this posted while I was copying the link.
I’ll just add, if you don’t want to buy a tool for something, you can always farm the work out. If the ones at the link are not perfect I bet they’d customize with a far sized order.
Let me see… you want to put a groove in wood that is under 2 inches thick, for what you make on a Glowforge? So you have the Glowforge? The Glowforge can engrave up to a half inch deep. Please explain the problem?
Should have mentioned that I saw them on Etsy but they seem really expensive there for what they are.
4$? Seems like a steal?
seems expensive to me.
Your hourly rate must be lower than mine
Ok fine google “wooden sign stand slot” and voila:

$2.60 per, but you gotta buy ten.
Thank you for looking for me - I’ve already seen these and searched myself. I was asked here because I know many people here to do woodwork and thought someone might have alternatives. I appreciate it!!
Really? $1.69 apiece? Still too much?

There’s no way to beat that price.
Just the materials and shipping would blow that out of the water almost any other way.
I mean if you want to make one you could do it pretty easily with a stacked design, danforth’s engraved slot idea is super problematic for a few reasons.
Anyhoo good luck. Not sure you can beat those prices.
Yes, that is good - that’s more of the price I was looking for! Thanks!
Economy of scale!if you’re not in a hurry I bet aliexpress has them too. Might get a slightly better price there.
Looking I see walnut with groove for $2.50 and walnut without groove for $8.00, in that case, @evansd2 has a point.
