Staining Stand

I am putting shellac on 30+ sheets of plywood. I needed a means to keep them off of the table. Enter these little tripods (yes, I know they have 4 legs…I was just too lazy to look up what a tripod with 4 legs is called. A quad-pod?)

Cut them out of 1/8" ply and they snap together. Perfect Glowforge solution to my problem. I hope it helps one of you.

Thanks for the share. I am going to drill a small hole in the tops and put a brad nail for an even finer point. That also allows me to scrape any paint of stain off of the nail with a blade and not worry about cutting in to the wood.
