Something New! Marble Stands

My dear hubby Greg has many talents (only some of which I can discuss here…I kid, I kid!).  Long ago he used to work with wood, making kaleidoscopes, pens, and even turned bowls.  Now he is putting our shed to use making lighted marble stands.  He’s using hardwoods, maple and walnut. But he did pick up some exotics at the hardwood shop this week, so there will be more variety to come.

A few are on ebay now.

This all started last month when we were trying to figure out how we would display a few marbles at the ISGB Gathering next month.  Greg came across some lighted displays and picked them up.  This led to him making marbles that will glow when being lit up.  See the above picture.  And of course he wasn’t happy with the ready-made light stands he bought, so he ended up making his own.   We both love them and are pretty sure we will be offering hardwood marbles stands  regularly.

I hope you love them as much as we do!
