This latest Swiss Cowbell Stand is number 7, and the largest one yet. The bell is 12 inches in diameter, and the strap is 6 inches across. This build was a commissioned piece for a client in Virginia. She wanted the stand to be stained to match existing furniture…..espresso. The build went well, with the construction of solid cherry, measuring 14×16 x 34 inches, and it was finished with Minwax combination stain and poly, which was difficult to work.
The inset crosses on the sides are representative of the cross on Swiss flag. The top yoke is a build-up of solid cherry that I turned on my lathe to match the width of the side leg assembly.
I think it is a good look with the bell installed….............

Sorry, somebody had to say it ;-) This is really cool! I’ve never heard of such a thing but I really like the craftsmanship in this piece.
