    Folding Party Stands

    About a year ago, I did the marquetry for these party stands (something to sit your drink and food on). But other projects always got in the way of finishing them. Over the past week to ten days, I was able to put some time into them and finally got them finished.

    Each one is a different wood. One is maple, another oak, cherry, and finally, walnut. I designed the legs so that they're be reasonably stable when in use, but would fold flat for storage. One day, I'll make a piece of furniture that will store these.

    WOW! NICE! I've been wanting to make something like that to put in my RV so when we sit outside there is someplace to set items. Mine, I can assure will not be near the pretty!

    This food and drink ... do they come from Mount Olympus? I can't think of any other comestibles and libations that would be good enough for these trays!!

    Very, very cool Mike.
