I spent some time making a Japanese style stand from Western Red Cedar and a piece of a Redgum burl I had lying around for my oldest Bonsai over the last week. I see it every morning out of my kitchen window and I love it.

I did a blog on making the stand and it starts here;

Thanks for looking, be nice to each other :-)

besides the fact that I love bonsai I must say I love your bonsai stand very organic it just blends with the beauty of the bonsai.

That’s a fantastic looking Bonsai stand! Very organic, and definitely enhances the Bonsai!

I love it. Imagine if you could commission a potter to form a bonsai pot to be form fitted into a fashioned hole in the burl table top, rather than hiding the beauty of the wood with a standard planter. Just a thought . . . love your idea and your fine execution.

Fantastic! Beautiful stand (for a beautiful bonsai). Love the way shapes repeat – rectangular pot, rectangular legs, irregular burl, irregular tree. Cutting the burl may have been difficult but I’m sure it was satisfying to do things the old fashioned way. Thanks for posting.
