Hi everyone,
I made a couple of these wooden engine stands for display purposes. I thought they came out ok? What do y’all think?
I hope everyone has had or is going to have a fantastic Christmas!!

The stands look great! You could also use them as test stands. Re-mount the engine on the backside and clamp the base to a table. Lighting The Tree

Thank you Eric, they’re pretty easy to put together if you can cut straight lines, then just used some 240-400-600 sandpaper’s to get it really smooth, overkill I know lol.

Nice looking stands!

Did you just glue the vertical piece on or use a dowel or a screw also? I’ve been thinking about something like those for my ”collection pieces”, maybe even with small engraved name tags Smile I just don’t have a place to display them yet, at least not all of them. Maybe I should just pick half dozen favourites, or maybe even rotate them Huh...

I see you like used engines, those are my favourites too. I like to tinker, clean up and polish things, and these little gems are great little projects that you can complete in an evening or two Thumbs Up

Thank you for the kind words everyone!!

They are glued (I used a brand called liquid nails) and there’s 2 nails in each to hold them for strength. I don’t think the nails would be necessary as the glue I use it rediculously strong but I put them in just in case.

Yes I love used engines, something about the journey they’ve been on but still live after all this time.
