Finally done! It took much more time than I expected, because I had been a bit busy doing this and that, I could have not spent much time in the shop, like an hour a day sometimes, so it took much longer. Well, it’s done now.

As I wrote in the blog, there were some points for this music stand project.

1) need to be adjustable, both height and tilt.
2) need to be folded or be compact when it needs to be
3) want it to be unique!

I used curved cherry long like this one for the desk part, and I think it came out unique.

It is really easy to make these apart or put them together. Without any tool, it takes only 60 seconds or so.

From woodworking

I made an option part “a small side-table” from the idea from a site which webwood/erik taught me. Thank you!

I want to make one more of music stand sometime soon (maybe different design), but it will be after Christmas, because there are a lot to do before that… Anyway, when I am doing this, I made a few mistakes, or maybe more, but I hope I can improve them for the next time.

I didn’t mean so, but it seem like this became a Xmas present for me from me this year?!?

Greetings Junji:
You have done an outstanding job on the stand. Very unique in design. I like it very much. You are a real artist when it comes to your own design. It’s kind of like music—you never get anywhere doing someone else’s songs—you have to write and sing your own. Same with woodworking. Keep on keeping on, Junji.

Excellent work Junji. Your projects all have a signature style to them that puts them in the “art” category. This one is no exception. Looking forward to seeing the next one.

Nicely done, Junji. I like the ordered chaos. By that I mean it is obvious that there is a design, but the materials seem to be random pieces which just fit, so it looks very natural.

I recognise some of the design details as I also stole some ideas from the same site as you as you can see in my first posted project.

Everybody thank you so much for your kind words!

Yes, I had seen your photos, of course, before I started this project, so I can say I stole some of your design…

So what instrument do you and your wife teach? I think music stand is really a nice way to “SHOW OFF! your ability.
