This is my second music stand and the fourth or so foray into Craftsman style furniture. Built for a customer, it used nearly every tool in the shop.
I started with two boards of quartersawn oak and resawed a section to build the box for the base. I realized there was a bend inside the board and switched from a miter to a locked rabbet which kept the box straight. The feet are attached with a bolt from the bottom with walnut accents.
The height is maintained by a mortised pin that locks at every two inches. The top also pivots on a locking bolt with matching wooden caps.
The top includes a walnut inlay of a music staff as well as pinned through tenons on top. I built a cove for the music rest on the table saw and added two small walnut pins underneath to add interest.
Finish was mission oak stain plus semigloss poly and turner’s wax.
