Wooden Stand

Wooden StandA wooden stand, as the name suggests, stands and supports something which cannot stand on its own. For example, books, plates, hats, coats and other clothes that we do not intend to store in cupboards and cabinets are kept on the wooden stands. Sometimes the wooden stands are also used to keep things at an elevated position. For example TV, music system, etc. do not need any support to stand. However, a TV has to be kept at the eye level of the viewers and music systems too have to be protected from elements that can harm them. As such, wooden tv stands are used for the purpose.
