Making Music (well a stand at least) - Project #4

The inspiration for this project came from the July 2007 issue of American Woodworker. I loved the form of the three legged slat top music stand but I wasn’t quite ready to take on the steam bending process. I modified the design to allow use of simple joinery and straight milled lumber. In addition to a music stand I also needed a guitar stand so I simply added two wood dowels that I dipped in tool handle plastic to add some cushion. The wood is urban harvest Claro Walnut and the finish is 3 coats of Watco wet sanded per Ray Lancon’s instructions (here).

Very cool. I like what you did with the legs, I think it fits with the overall design quite nicely.
