Samurai Armor Display Stand for $20

Here's the recently acquired samurai armor displayed on a scratch-built stand. Using an inexpensive ($13.00), but sturdy end table from Walmart, along with left over PVC tubing and a few connectors the final product is quite effective.
This is the traditional way samurai armor is displayed - sort of a seated position. Of course, an armor storage chest is supposed to be what the armor is seated on, but I didn't want to spend $200.00 for it - however nice it was.
I could cover the PVC stand with black cloth, but the back will be against a wall and not be visible.
Not pretty, but cheap and sturdy. Did I say this is part of the Frugal Armoury? :)

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Jonathan. Although I would like to acquire more pieces, this last set has pretty much filled up the living room - to the limits of my long-suffering wife's toleration. Warm regards, Dean
