Interesting Pot Supports Contest

Last week I found an interesting pot support at the thrift store. It's a candle holder and it has pine tree silhouettes. The tips of the pine trees will support a 2 cup capacity pot. I'll get a photo of it later and post it.

What have you purchased at a thrift store that might be of interest as a pot support? Post a photo of it in this thread.

The entries will be judged the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Winner will receive a stove and Foster Ridgeline pot and some other goodies. :D

My entry: Piney Woods Pot Support, Foster 2 cup Flat Bottom pot with new 1.5 fuel capacity StarLyte Burner soon to be available on a Black Friday Sale(the burner only with cap)

You know you might just as well send it to me...if it's a "thrift store buy"... :lol:
I've been eyeballing some expanded aluminum mesh that is a gutter guard..I already bought some before..but this is a bigger bundle of it :shock: ..It's roughly 6" wide X 3' long sections..maybe 6-10...It would be easy to "ring it together" in triangular configurations that would fold flat..for woodstoves,potstands,etc...
I've posted curtain hooks..my Sheba used the bottom frame crosspieces of the sieve I stole the mesh for the top of the stove from.I've also used aluminum garden edging(pot stand and windscreen combo)...
I suppose you'll want something new though ..to make it a challenge...Okay..Is there a weigh or price limit?Size of pot it has to support?Any mods possible..or "as is"?..or just something that is really bizarre?
I think we also need a burn test to make sure it'll hold up to the heat..Your pine trees appears to be made at the same Chinese factory my tiki stove was made out of..remember that?Everything is soldered together and heat might make it fall apart.. :lol:

No limits :o what ever you choose will be judged. No limit on quantity of entries. No limit on pot size.

Are you thinking a pot stand for backpacking or any size such as a inverted metal Xmas tree stand?

Any size pot stand. The more eggs on it, the better :lol: and bananas :DB:

If you can find a "redneck" style pot support be sure to include it. Those are "likable" :mrgreen:
