Built A Plaque Stand For The Eland Euromount

The Eland euromount was leaning against the wall between the other two mounts. This made me really nervous so I made a stand for the plaque.

Somebody is handy with a router....
Honestly, just about anyone can make one of these pretty easily.
Actually no routing or intricate scroll sawing required to make this plaque stand! The scrolled supports on both sides are actually wooden shelf support brackets. You can buy these at Lowes unfinished for just over $5 each. Each support is glued and biscuit joined to the center support plank. The rest of the pieces are cut from the scrap making the center support plank. Final finish is Minwax Bombay Mahogany (use the pre-stain conditioner first!)
I hung the plaque on the screw in the center support plank. And finally used wood screws to fasten the plaque from the back side through the center support wings.
The thing that takes the most time is all the gluing and clamping. I used a biscuit joiner but the job could be done with screws and a drill.

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.
