I am looking for opinions or tips on ways to display a wand collection. Types of stands or cases etc. Thanks
THOUGHTfully,

This is how David Price displayed his at the Egyptian Hall in Tennessee. It was called the Wall of wands. It was actually like a "page" in a giant book attached to the wall in his main display room. The other pages had photos, etc. (The gentleman in the photo is the late Charlie Buckner.)

Mike Caveney bought this collection and I recall seeing a photo of the wands displayed in a stand not unlike a miniature pool cue stand. If you have lots of wands, I could see this idea built with tiers, or possibly made with a helix design.

Thanks Michael. I never got to see Prices place so I really like seeing this photo. I also really like that sort of display. You have given me some ideas. I will be sure to share the outcome of what I end up doing. Thanks again .
THOUGHTfully,

Michael, (looking at photo) For a second I thought you moved your beard to the back of your head!
I thought "That's a good trick".

I see there are Leaves to the display.
All my wands are in cardboard tubes so I can get to them - but the're catagorized.

Aside from the Hoffman style wands of a hnundred years ago (coin rolling, ball balancing, silk standing) the best one I have is a shocking wand. Hold it by the middle and you're OK but hold it by either end and - zap.

Five of Hearts Magic (Colin Rose) has a nice desktop stand, Victorian style.

Has anyone tried using an old revolving pipe display stand? I'm thinking that might look nice.

Thanks! That's what I was trying to describe when I was thinking of a pool cue stand. I believe it was Caveney who had a display stand similar to a pipe stand.
