Isn't this a friendly bunch!
My husband had the saw out to make a custom toy shelf for the children's bedroom. I seized my opportunity to get a finger puppet stand made.
The base and doweling came from the dollar store in town. It's a kind of plaque, I think?
He cut the doweling. Front ones are 3 inches and the back ones are 4 inches. I drill straight through the bottom to get more stability with the peg in a hole.
A bit of wood glue and one finger puppet stand made!
Have a good one!
