This consists of a base block, specially drilled with two holes the right size to take two brass rods (supplied), one thicker than the other. To make a stand, fit the thick rod into the right hole and begin to stack bits and pieces on it to form a stand. Unstack, and stack again, with two different findings, beads, bases, until you are satisfied with the result. Epoxy all the pieces to the rod. If you fit the thin rod into the other hole in the block, you can use it to build up a finial in the same way. Start with a suitable finding to sit on the egg (eg: F74 for a goose egg or F93 for an ostrich egg), then build up from there.
