    Well after an immense amount of searching for knife stands for the display table with little to no results as to what I was looking for, I decided to my dismay that I would be better off making my own despite the time quickly creeping up. With $6 worth of 5/8" doweling, 2hours of my time and a left over sheet of MDF here is what I came up with. They still need to be painted and I will apply some felt down the risers but you'll get the idea. The 4 stands will hold a total of 32 knives and I will still have a few to lay in the middle f the table as well ;)

    Wow Steve! Do you have some little elves that do all this while you are asleep? No seriously great idea on the display stand. Got the certs there too. Very professional.

    Woke up at 4am and 14 hours later finally got these 20 blades heat treated and made 9 sheaths. Things are finally starting to move along again.
