Duet Music Stand

I made this stand as a wedding gift for a precious couple who are both musicians. Materials are walnut and hickory, finished with Danish oil. Modeled after some antiques I saw online. I think I used every tool in my shop during the process, from milling to details to final assembly. First time to use a lathe to turn the height adjustment knob and top finial. I will post the SketchUp model in the 3D Warehouse for anyone who is interested.

It was a fun build, and I learned quite a bit going through the process.

Very interesting design and function, curious as to type of joint used for inside carcass frame?

Andre – it’s a small (approx 1/8-3/16 inch) rabbet/dado joint on the carcase frame. Carcase is about 5/16 thick. Intended to be 3/8 but, alas, one quarter-turn too much on the planer.

Beautiful work! I have built many different music stands over the past 20 years and love this design, I have been thinking of making a duet stand for a friend and his wife who play violin and cello. I may use some of your ideas.

Realy looks beautiful with that contrasting wood.

Very nice.

One question, how did you cut the steps used to adjust the angles. I have an idea for a music stand and need to cut some similar steps.

Pimzedd (Bill) – sorry for delayed reply. Just returned from vacation. The steps and angles were quite the challenge. I have a SketchUp model that I’m going to clean up and upload to the 3D Warehouse. If you download that you can pick it apart and see how I built it, and take full accurate dimensions.

I’ll post another reply once that is done.

Thanks!

Cheers!
