Just thought all might like to read the latest Bill Valavanis blog where he provides great suggestions for inexpensive display options. Valanis Blog

Thanks, Doug and Thanks, Bill.

Here's another relatively cheap idea for a stand:  Go to a crafts store or a trophy shop and buy a blank faux wood mount for a certificate or award wall hanging.  They usually are walnut colored and very polished.   Here's a battered one I find I still have (they're much more polished and smooth and dark when they havent' been gathering dust, etc. for 10 years):



You can use it flat on the table, or you can give it legs:





To lift the stand a bit off the tabletop:



All of these pictures are quite old (except the first one, in which the plaque board is old).  I've managed to acquire some "better" stands on the interim.

Maybe others have different examples of inexpensive -- but NICE and traditional -- display stands.

Show 'em here.

Avant garde' or offbeat or simply odd stands might be given their own thread, he asked, hopefully.

On the west coast back in the 60's all the rage was getting a red wood "slab" and setting a battery operated clock in it. Most of the clocks have long run the distance and the slabs are found in rummage sales etc. You can use the other side for display or fill in the hole made for the clock with wood puddy and then place your bonsai pot atop the fill.
