Son of STAN(d)

I recently binge-watched two seasons of the Netflix original series, Mindhunter. This true-crime drama portrays the origination of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia. Through recorded interviews, two FBI agents and a psychologist try to understand the thought processes of convicted serial killers, in the hopes of gleaning knowledge which could then be applied to solve ongoing homicide cases. Although dark, and at times quite disturbing, Mindhunter is well-acted and provides an intriguing insight into the development of the FBI’s BSU. I consider it's a must-see!

Back in the shop, I slathered my completed mahogany book stand with BLO and turps, giving it a warm rubiginous appearance. Continuing the utilization of ”less than desirable” bits and pieces, I managed a smaller book stand in oak. Measuring just nine inches wide by eight inches high, feast your eyes upon, ”Son of STAN(d).” Sorry, I couldn’t resist!

Nice Ron.

I'll admit I had too look up the Son of Stan reference.
Although, It's been a fair while since I had to look up a word, so kudos for rubiginous :)

Another beauty, These are nice stands, that would work for a few different things. One that does come to mind is a framed photo providing the frame does not cover the sides and is a simple frame.
