I just send it to start making some stands for my fossils. This is my first one. It's a very simple one. I bought some brass rod at the craft store and decide it it was way too flimsy and not up to the task. so I went into the closet and pulled out a coat hanger that had plenty of patina on it. None of their decided coat hangers to the right materials I did a post on Facebook asking for people's old hangers. I'm going to cut all the straight portions of the hangers and keep them and toss out the rest. Soon I will be swimming in free wire to make fossil stands. And the older coat hangers have better color to them and brand new brass. You can get the pre-cut wood plaques and hobby lobby or Michaels for about $0.75. I very lightly staind the wood because I'm one of the possible to stand out. You can easily make these for under a dollar apiece without even having to cut the wood. Next will be time to see winter coat hanger solder together very well for more intricate stands.
