This folding bookstand is based on the one in the Roy Underhill article in the February 2011 Popular Woodworking issue. The stand is made from a single piece of red oak with all the joinery cut into the board until it will hinge open and closed. The finish is simple boiled linseed oil. Mine was basically a testbed project, but I decided that it was worth keeping, despite the wormholes. If there were a few more of them, they could be a design feature!
