This is my second music stand made from myrtle and walnut. It was a challenge to myself to see if I could make a music stand you could adjust with one hand. I just about got it, but I got a little lazy with the lifting part, you still have to use two hands for that.
It is seen with a bench, but I will save that for another project post. The top swivels in the base and it has a ratcheting armature that holds the face in place to angle the book and with the push of a button you can lower it back down using one hand. The notched arm is made from laminated maple. It breaks down into two pieces to ship, if I were to do it again I think I might make it more collapsible. I included some pictures of the back with a tape measure if it helps someone to try to make a similar mechanism.
I had posted a video years ago of it, forgive the quality it is a bit grainy and the music is awful but licence free. I don’t like copy right violations. I had a lot of fun making it and hope to make some more music stands in the future. Thanks,
