Thank you so much for your responding to my blog. And here is the answer!
Many of your answers were really close, and some are really interesting. (I like the noodle counter as a great idea!)

Anyway, it is just as you see in the photo.

I was told to make this from my friend musician, he is really talented pianist/arranger in Japan. He told me he was looking something like this.

From For Blog

But never be able to find any information about this product in Japan, or on the internet, but he really want it because he sometimes play with orchestra and the normal music stand which go with grand piano, he can’t see other players or the conductor because the music stand is in his way. You can also make the normal music stand just flat, but in that way, it’s somewhat hard to read the music, and he also claims that the pen or the pencil always fall into the inside.

So I made it. Actually this was the very first ordered object from somebody except my family. And moreover, it was a paid project! Wow, this is really something new to me, it’s just like the first payment for a gig when I was 18 or so.

Well, I don’t know exactly how this is called, but I am just saying this is a music stand for grand piano. When it sits there, it just looks really nice. I am not sure if there is anybody else who wants this thing, but as all of you answered my question, there must be other good ways to use this too! Ha!

The dimension is about 30×13 inches. The main board is ash. The photos are from concerts of yesterday and today.
The best part of this project was how he looked happy when he saw this. I didn’t think that he would thank me so deeply, but it sure is a great feeling.

Hi Junji….I was thinking about you! I assumed you weren’t posting because it was too cold in your shop. I see that wasn’t the case, beautiful music stand. Too bad the piano doesn’t look as good as the music stand.

I didn’t even guess what it could be. You must have a very talented family Junji.
