Broder broader

Broder display stand

Materials: Broder system and custom iron work

Description: Using a Broder “T” foot and two “L” feet. I cut the “L” feet so I could weld them onto the “T” foot. This made an “X” foot so a single Broder post can be self standing. Next I used 14 Broder Center brackets. I cut the two ends of each bracket, leaving the center with the hooks for the post. These pieces were then welded onto the scrolls I fabricated. After that it is just a lot of cleaning and painting.

    Is the metal easy to cut? Can I cut it with home metal saw?

    Very nice. I would copy this & use to display steins ( when not in use). But that would give my cats an easy way to get at & break-em. Will definitely consider re-creating this though. Thanks 4 sharing.
