A pair of Music Stands in Black Lacquer and Brass for the Salmagundi Club of New York. The design features an adjustable Desk Angle Mechanism that locks in place at 0-30-60-90 degree positions, also a Brass/ black epoxy filled medallion of the Salmagundi Club logo. I designed and fabricated all Brass and Wood pieces of these stands.

Pictures above are in my neighbor’s home. These pictures are of the stands at the Salmagundi Club.

Beautiful! Elegant and great style. I’m working on a few music stands myself but need to know where did you get the hardware? The hardest part of my build is finding well made hardware for them.

I designed and fabricated all of the brass mechanisms and hardware.

I looked into having these pieces outsourced through a 3D printing process but decided in the end to make it myself. I drew up a design on the computer-printed it out and glued it to the surface of a brass plate. I then free hand milled out the profile and refined it with lots of hand filing and sanding.

I mixed up some black epoxy and filled the relief with it.

Wow, these are really fantastic. They look professional and elegant, well done. Machining all that brass must have taken a while.

Fine work indeed. The stands are beautiful, and the handcrafted medallion and brass work truly distinguish these pieces as exceptional. Well done, and thanks for sharing.
