« Part 1: Here are some photos Part 2 of Music Stand series no next part

My shop is a garage, and it’s underneath my house, and it’s “half outside”. So it is getting cold, it is harder for me to stay there long, but still much better than the hot summer. Actually I like woodworking this time of the year there… Well, most of you here have “air conditioned- inside shop”, I suppose…

Anyway, here is the next step of the music stand.
I made the “neck” pat, which should be adjustable.

I hope the photos will do good enough, much better than my poor English…

Junji….your English is very good and more than adequate for what we do here. The small errors are understandable given that English is difficult for a lot of Americans also. Your work is your best form of communication. Where is Kobe located in Japan?

Good to see another project Junji.

I enjoyed listening to all the songs you have on MySpace. I just played them while doing the design work for a project. Nice:)

Junji: Your music stand is coming along nicely. Looks really unique in design. Keep up the good work. My guitar stands that I designed and finally finished up are ready for use. I’m going to try to get them posted as quick as I can. Yours in music. Rick.

Thank you everybody.

Don, Kobe is just next to Osaka in Western Japan. We have a big port, so it’s just like San Francisco, or Boston. I am from Kyoto, which is also not far from here. When you come to Japan, please come and visit Kyoto and you have to stay a cozy inn called “Junji’s Ryokan” in Kobe!

Todd, Thank you for listening to my music. Maybe I should update some songs there!

Hey Junji, the music stand looks great like all of your other projects. Your English is just fine, but if you visit me in Norway I can teach you half-English. That is speaking half English and half Norwegian at the same time as I do. LOL.

Thank you. Wow, that sounds like really interesting. “half English and half Norwegian at the same time” doesn’t make you and listener confused?!? By the way, Norway is one of the countries I really wanna visit someday.
