This is my interpretation of a Wharton Esherick design. It is made from European Beech, sealed, then a top coat of lacquer. My design differs from the original to accommodate aa standing player; the original was designed for a cellist, a sitting player, so the relationship of the music holder to the legs is different. I was initially uncertain of the curves and angles and its stability. I took my best guess and made a rough, full sized prototype out of poplar, good thing I did. The first prototype was highly unstable and would fall at the slightest touch. I made some adjustments, moved the center of gravity, roughed out another prototype and came up with a very stable design. Making a prototype also helped me visualize how the legs would be tapered as they start ouy round and end up rectangular. Thanks for looking. Jim.
