Hello all!

Based on the original design by Sam Maloof this beautiful music stand is built off the templates and instructions of the great Scott Morrison (-:

Featuring fair sculpted lines, by loosening the threaded adjustment lock your able to raise and lower as well as adjust the tilt of the sheet music holder.

This music stand is built using Bubinga as the main wood with accents of Wenge and Curly Maple, also there are some 1’’ long 3/16’’ brass pins to reinforce the accent strips along the sides of the sheet music holder.

The Wenge handles are threaded using the beall system then the threads are soaked with ca glue to harden them, works really well.

Pictured last is my favorite dog he’s a Canary Island Mastiff ....... (-:

You can follow along my build of this music stand with the others I made at the same time on my blog so go have a look at my post – Handmade sculpted bespoke music stands are born, follow along!

Thanks for looking!

Paul you do wonderful Maloof inspired work. I need to make a graduation gift for my Parkhill ON grand daughter and this would be ideal. I’ve made the Maloof rocker with Bastogne Walnut so the music stand ought to be doable. Funny thing is I have the Beal machine for at least 25 years and only used it once so I’m glad I kept it.

Thanks everyone!

Stanley I think anyone can complete a beautiful music stand just like this with Scotts templates and instructions. It does take patience as there are many pieces that have to come together. As with most projects as long as the piece is divided into individual sections you’ll find your way to the end and arrive at a beautiful sculpted music stand.

Excellent crafting, choices of wood, and pride in presentation.

You made this your own!
