I have been trying to come up with cheap pedestals that would be easy to
store and to transport. I have come up with several ideas:
1. Home theater speaker stands. Check out IKEA or any audio store or
department. IKEA has some of differing heights, with holes in the top
plate that would make mounting a bat or other shelf quick and easy.
2. Paper mache. Create over boxes or mesh.
3. Plain boxes. At this year's Bellevue Arts Fair a stone turner used
plain cardboard boxes with wood shelves over the top. If I had not gone to
the fair with the primary purpose of getting display ideas, I would never
have noticed. You should be able to get were absolutely plain boxes from
any box wholesaler, who is certain to have a variety of sizes.

I don't know if you have them in your country or if
they would suit, but when I was a student we used those
large cable drums (look like giant cotton reels) you
see around building or construction sites. A word to
the boss/foreman usually got them for free.
We used them as a table between exhibitions, so storage
was not a problem. Transportation would be difficult
with the larger ones... Unless you could roll them
along, which is what we used to do.
