|If you have free standing objects that don't stand up very well, he can make simple metal bases with a post coming out of it and drill a hole into the
leg or base of the object to make it stand up correctly and look great.
|Some ideas for helmet masks, hats, headdresses and other similar items...
Helmet masks can be hard to display since they are usually pretty large and require a lot of table space. Stands for helmet masks are fairly
common, and due to the nature of helmet masks the stands don’t need to be custom made since the masks just sit on the stand ( you do have
to make sure the mask is balanced though).
Often times the stands aren’t tall enough for you to place the piece directly on the floor because it doesn’t put it at a viewable level and out of
the way of foot traffic. You normally have to place them on a table or pedestal of some sort to get them at a viewable level and out of the way of
foot traffic and I’ve always wanted some inexpensive stand that would to allow me to display helmet masks in areas where I don’t have any
display pedestals or tables.
Ken makes them in 15" and 30" high sizes and larger if you need. You can adjust the top by rotating it so you will get the perfect fit.
Please contact Ken for pricing.
If you are interested in ordering one of these you can contact Ken directly to order them through his contact information earlier on this page.
|The photo below shows a 36" tall helmet stand on the very left and the larger stand in the middle is 45" tall.
Normally they have square bases.
Sometimes it is nice to get a piece up off of the floor a little more and out of the way of foot and dog traffic.
Ken can make different heights so you can display a group of masks like this in a corner and really make the masks
look great in a group. I have a group of Kuba masks displayed at different heights and it looks great.
|Floating shelves are a great way to display objects. I got 4 of these shelves and offset them so it would allow me to display some larger pieces
along with some smaller pieces. The photo isn’t that great, but it gives you an idea of what you can do with the shelves. It’s great for small
things and gives you a place to rotate small things that you may have tucked away in a cabinet to a more prominent place. The pieces I have
on my shelves are constantly changing and it's nice to kind of highlight different items from time to time.
