Finally, our favorite beastie gets to pose on a pedestal befitting her rank.

The stand is made from Douglas fir and will be stained down to a much darker color to lose some of that lumber yard appearance.  A pivoting counterstay and adjustable prop should complete the look.  The fashionistas tell me that polished steel and dark wood tones will be all the rage this year.   Bronze accents are always a plus.  Note to self:   some fluffy sheepskin on the shoulder stock should serve to bring out her softer side.  What is it they say,  “When in doubt, accessorize.”
