Hello all!

Finally, after years of storing my swords in a corner of the room, I've managed to build a sword display that fits my current needs...

It's a simple steel frame covered with a simili-leather canvas. The frame is made from perforated bars and the strings that hold the weapons go through the canvas and tie into the perforations. The display is held against the wall by the chest of drawers in front of it, the bottom bar is actually larger than the visible width of the display which makes the whole thing quite stable.

It's a good design for me because it makes it possible to try different dispositions, it can adapt to various kinds and sizes of swords and weapons, it leaves the weapons relatively easy to access and take down, and all that without any holes drilled in the wall behind (a big factor for me since I only rent the place).

It's not completely child-safe of course, but right now this is not a primary concern for me. Being behind furniture and relatively high, I think it would be quite difficult to access for small children anyway, but I wouldn't leave unprotected blades like that if I had unsupervised children around...

The swords that can be seen there are, from top to bottom:

Regards,

Hey Vincent
I like it, is a simple solution that works really well with a rental property and is great that it holds so many swords.

Hi David,
Yes, being adapted to a rental property was one of my main constraints, as well as being relatively space-efficient (the place is not that big Wink ). I don't think it is at full capacity yet, maybe I'll manage another sword or two up there Big Grin

Sometimes I can't but let's face it, most of the times what's on the TV isn't actually more interesting to me than my swords Happy On the plus side I can still roughly follow what's happening on the TV while looking at my swords which is great Big Grin
