    anything can be used.
    I even had a nice wine or champagne glass on a feet that did come handy for a nice display.
    Here are some examples I am using right now.
    First one is a old hat stand as you can find some times on a flea market.
    Second one is a old spinning wheel I have took apart and mounted on a granite rock.
    A old candle stick can come easy as well.
    Or a ordinary piece of metal, round or square, that could be welded to a feet and even decorated or provided with something so other things like medals or gun can be presented as well. I am working on such a idea at the moment.

    carlarganda, I use shell cases, I find 77mm WW1 German not only a perfect fit but they compliment my collection of Imperial German militaria perfectly !....
