Cool DIY Stands

i built both stands myself...the pine i built in my back garden last year and is 6x18"x18" and is off the shelf pine which is all glued and biscuit jointed together so there are only a few screws in the mdf carcass it has 4 coats of acrylic varnish on it...................the second build 6x2x2 is mostly iroko hardwood with some sapele and oak inlay work and door panels which again i built in my spare time......this build is replacing the pine stand..........if anyone would like any more info on them both i can put up a build thread if your interested.....both stand were build with hand power tools apart from the corner posts which i turned on a lathe i have so they are well within reach of making with some diy skills
