It is made of concrete, is grey in coloration, and is less than a stud thick. It has a fairly large rectangular shape, but in previous versions, it was smaller.
On August 28th, 2015, the Alpha Axe's box was placed to the sandy slope near the Wood Dropoff. However, since it was in an easily accessible place, players were still able to interact with it. Due to this, Defaultio added and moved it to the Retirement Stand during September 2015. When the 2015 gifts were removed, the stand was made bigger so the box wouldn't fall off the platform. It was then removed once Lumber Tycoon 2 had moved out of the Alpha Testing Stage and then fully replaced by the Beta Axe of Bosses after the Beta Testing Stage had ended[Verification Needed].
At some point during 2016, wedge blueprints were added onto the shelf next to the stand. They remained there until they were fully implemented into the game.
Between June 5th, 2016, to December 21st, 2016, the Beta Axe of Bosses was added onto the stand, and was removed sometime between late 2016 to March 11th/April 15th, 2017[Verification Needed]. It was speculated to being removed to prevent players from exploiting their way to get it.
