Very nice work. A friend told me we need a nice old-style wooden music stand to put next to the piano in the house. I’ll have to look into this – way down the road. My wife has too many other projects in mind first. Keep up the great work. The details are super nice.

Very nice. A music stand is on my to-do list so I am always interested in how other people design them. I’m particularly interested in the height and tilt adjustments. This post gave me some ideas. Thank you for posting.

My daughter plays the clarinet and has been asking me to build her one. This has given me inspiration. Thanks!

Nice job on that. That should bring many years of good use.

This is on my “to do” list. Your design is different from what I had in mind, I like a couple aspects much much better than others I’ve seen. Thanks for sharing.
