    That looks easy enough to diy. A sheet of plexiglass and a table top easel or home made stand. I may just have to do that! :smile:

    The support looks like an inexpensive photo stand, and looks easy enough to knock-up at home. I concur with David, looks simple enough.

    Looks like a larger version of a plate display stand Gift shops. Might find something similar at a craft store. They have small easels that would hold 8X10-11X14 but they may not be plastic. If you get a wooden one you could seal it.

    Oh hell, I got a white plastic cutting board from the housewares department at WalMart for that.
