My attempt at making the Roubo Bookstand. It didn’t turn out all that great, but I still learned a lot. It’s a good way to improve you chiseling skills.

Looks like the concept could be used for larger things like magazine stands or some other display type things if made in a larger scale. I’m worn out. fun concept though…........;-J

Good work Shawn. The first one never turns out as good as we would like. But as you said, you learned some great new skills. That makes it all worth while.

watch the woodwright shop he uses a key hole saw to cut out the sides of the hinges. also odd number of hinge nuckles would be better to keep the shortest knuckle from splitting. i think it looks great otherwise.
