WoldStand Displays are unique, sanded and polished wooden pieces using mostly fallen or surgically removed wood from the Finger Lakes in New York.
The marbling pattern found in some wood pieces comes from the burl which can be a “cancer” of the tree, an injury or results of parasite growths like fungus and such. The exterior of burls have lumps and crannies and when finished can be a very interesting display base.
Knots are the spot where two branches conjoin and the ones we get are usually spaces where a branch fell from the trunk it was attached to. The rings and ridging in the middle are raised as the bark grows over the fresh wood creating some interesting terrain.
Plinths are typically finished tall pieces of wood, resin or stone that come round or square. Our plinths are larger sections of tree limbs and average two to six inches around and two to six inches high.

A genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.
Another genre of science fiction, wasteland or post-apocalyptic, is concerned with the end of human civilization. Usually the end occurs in such a way that the land is blasted and little vegetation or animal life remains.
