from this angle i think that the angle of the table works well...

but, i like different (and not just for the sake of different)

Matches the angle of the accent's table. It doesn't strike me as unusual at all. Tables (and square pots) are often displayed with a corner to the front.

Attached is an image of the Amethyst Falls wiseria display from the front view.

As far as the main table goes, here is the reason. The table top is 13" square. So, if you look at the table from the front it is 13" wide. If the table is turned with a corner for the front the width is now 19". If a larger table is needed, I often display it from an angle to appear larger. This also works for containers as well.

Excellent question!!

Thanks Bill!...I always struggle with the width or Heigth of stands. Your Trick on width was good to know. Depending on the scroll and whether it is a size that can be raised or lowered. I had my stand maker, make a stand that breaks down and can be reassembled into any combintion of three heights. problem is fixed width. LOL, always something it seems Smile

great tip!

i also noticed that all of the pictures of this display area are taken from the same oblique angle...

curious if there is a reason for that... ?

(is there an obstruction that prevents front facing pictures ? i can't recall from the pictures i think i saw when this was being built)

Here are a couple of older images of my studio.

By the way David Knittle built the alcove 27 years ago. I grew the "alcove post" over 30 years ago. It's a Camperdown Weeping English elm which died and I kept the post for future use. Guess I found a good use for the post. It was growing in a one gallon can about one foot tall when I got it and planted it in my garden.

ah yes !
those are the pictures i recall seeing...
i dont know why my recollection thought it was under construction scratch

but at any rate, i can see why a picture from directly in front might be cumbersome
(perhaps a small table top tripod set on the counter would do)

thanks for the replies !

Finished setting up the alcove display for my students tomorrow. This weekend it features a Dwarf wisteria, Millettia japonica. It is also known as "Blind wisteria" because it rarely blossoms, even in Japan. It's usually displayed in summer because of the tiny foliage which looks like Wisteria. The waterfall painting is suitable for a summer display with a Japanese painted fern.

Bill, that display is wonderful and that might be the nicest tree-stand pairing I've seen. It has something that draws me in. Thanks for sharing and I hope to stand in that sales area some day, bye golly.. Like a Star @ heaven
