Here are some pics of the other Attrill in our household, well Laurences hands anyway!
Toby went to Hebden Bridge last week to deliver his jewellery to a lovely shop that sells artists work and fairtrade goods. He presented some pieces on his display stands, which the owners of the shop really liked. So, Toby said "my Dad made them!" and came home to Laurence with a commission to make 14 for the shop.
Laurence went off to buy the wood, then set up the machinery in his workshop downstairs, table saw, belt sander etc and cut everything out, then finished each piece off by hand with a plane and sanding block. While he was doing this I added a few more to his list, some for Toby to use, a few larger bases, and some with with wider slits to hold plywood acrylic paintings, plus some extra to sell (hopefully!)
So, if any of you reading this have a shop, do craft fairs, or would like one of these for any reason, please dont copy us, but contact Laurences agent (Toby!) to arrange your purchase.
They are handmade and cost around £7 each, depending on size and quantity of order, plus p+p

Those are fantastic :) Really professional. If I ever get back onto the craft fair circuit I will have to see about getting some Attrill-made display stands

These are very smart - excellent for shop displays. Unfortunately I have a handyman who has made my display rack otherwise I'd be very interested in some of these!

Well done, Attrill senior! Very nice stands; I'm sure they show off their contents admirably.
