I finally completed my latest project. This is from a set of plans I found on a woodworking site, but I forgot which one. As legend goes, this is a print stand that Frank Lloyd Wright designed, but never did build. For that reason alone, I felt I had to do this. Plus, it helps to round out my artist line of products.
The stand is made from Oak, with three coats of Shellac (2lb cut clear) for protection. The overall dimensions are 36” tall, 8” wide, and 10” deep. The spindles and frame use Festool dominos to attach. The legs are also attached with dominos. The hardest part was using the Festool to make the mortises on the base and upper support. When I make the next one, I will probably build a jig to ensure I get the mortises spaced and centered more easily. Overall, I like how it turned out.
The pictures are tall and skinny, so you will have to enlarge them to see the complete project.
