Hello! I'm working on getting a pair of these finished and would like to replicate this stand. I made one before using a cake pan as the base. I used poster board to cut out the rest the pieces and a dowel for the long pole part where the ear stems go. While it was nice it just wasn't all that sturdy and I'd like to make something a little more solid this time around. While the ideal route would be metal that's just impossible at this time. The only tools I have are hand saws, a drill, and a few other select items. I have no access to any large saws to cut wood with. Just thought I'd throw that out there to tell you what I'm working with. Here's a few photos, advice is appreciated.
