I made this music stand for an old friend’s 50th birthday. The bent-laminated arc, shelf, and legs are native Iowan walnut. The tines are maple with walnut splines at the joint. The feet are curly maple. I used brass rod to secure the tines and to pin the legs.
I have a total of about 60 hours on the stand, much of that time was spent building jigs.
I want to point out that this is not an entirely original design. I saw something like it years ago, but can’t recall where. I’m not sure how close this is to the original. I’ve looked through all my old magazines and books, but couldn’t find it.
