Hello guys! Im looking to get a couple of bonsai stand and root stand to take pics, What's the best website that sell them at reasonable prices, I seen some at crazy prices and some cheaper ones are from China that are tiny that doesn't fit anything more than Mame size. I don't need anything high end, just decent quality is more than enough. Thanks

I dont know what you consider to be a "reasonable price" but root stands take a lot of hours to make so they are a higher price than the typical square bonsai stands.
You arent going to find "cheap" root stands because the maker has to get paid for the time he spends making them.

Understood, I’m just asking around for reasonable prices as they can range from $30 China made ones to $2000+. Sorry I didn’t mean “ cheap”

I would guess for a good small shohin sized root stand you are going to pay $500+ at the very least.

I make my own. Sometimes I use cheap beveled wood plaques from craft stores, some stain and varnish, and I buy miniature bronze legs from Ebay. When I want to get fancy though, I fire up the scroll saw and do a lot more intricate stuff. I can post a picture of the "quick and easy" stands if you want.

Sorry for the Delay. Here's two pics showing some of the simple bases I made. I cannot find the little table I made with the scroll saw though. it's in the shed somewhere.... I also attached a pic the little feet that you can buy on ebay.
