I was inspired by jerry118's adjustable music stand. This was my first real attempt at hidden joinery techniques. I really had a lot of fun (when I wasn’t frustrated with my own lack of knowledge). I made some rookie mistakes. Luckily, hubby was able to advise me how to correct them without scraping the whole darned project~LOL. The wood types are Curly Maple and Cherry. There is a stablizing brass hinge at the top and friction lid hinge to allow for adjustablility. For height adjustability there is a removable peg.

I gave the music stand to my father for Christmas in 3 different packages. The first package had just the peg. My father’s sense of humor about what the different possibilites for the peg could be had everyone laughing. The second package had the base. He really was dumbfounded now. And the laughter continued! And finally he opened the last package (which he had guessed was a snow shovel) and was very surprised. This is the first gift I’ve given him in 10 years (or more) that he HASN’T correctly guessed before opening! It made for a fun Christmas Morning!

Nicely done and an interesting design. And, a great story to go with it.

Now you’ve inspired me to finish my music stand. How did you connect the feet to the upright?

Neato! And it must have been very satisfying to stump the ol’ man for a change!

Aww, thanks guys!

Wadestock~Simple dowels and glue. It’s surprisingly strong but…IF I ever do another one I’ll attach the two side feet with screws before putting the upright together.

rwyoung~Stumping Dad was definitely the best part of Christmas for me this year! Well, worth all the work.

Great job indeed ! Is it just my monitor , or is Dad wearing Camo slippers ? (or did he step in something out in the barn ?)
