Hi after seeing a few posts on here for display stands @snolly50, I figured i would try my hand at it I went more steam punk industrial if thats a thing haha.  Used a couple pieces of wood I found in the garage (spruce) stained it with a jacobean stain.  Bought 1/4 round steel bar and bought a pipe bender of Amazon.  For the bear paw I used a bit of metal wire aswell and furniture felt pads for the base :)....its not perfect but I'm happy with the result.  I know the femur is off center im waiting for my wife's cricut machine to come it so I can make a label for it!Screenshot_20201210-130446_Gallery.thumb.jpg.5fcc02fe654a8be7558d6487aa96dff0.jpgScreenshot_20201210-130459_Gallery.thumb.jpg.3c875e98ed84192619cc88882adcf3ea.jpgScreenshot_20201210-130520_Gallery.thumb.jpg.4a143bf07c3eafa84008ce5de318b103.jpg

Nice job! I always like using scrap pieces from the garage bin to make stands and other small projects around the house.

Yes, I think they display a lot nicer, standing up, instead of sprawling across a shelf.

Nice display. I like it a lot. Simple yet functional. :) 
 

Sometimes stands can take away from the fossil by distracting the eye. Yours preforms it’s job well without being a distraction. Great job! :thumbsu:
