Music stands, part 2- I have finished the two stands referred to. Curly Maple, Walnut. Can not hardly see the finish diff., but one is watco with wax over it. The other is one coat watco, then waterlox, thinned slightly to wipe on. Wax over again. Some difference in my time to apply the waterlox, and it just does not look or feel all that much better than the Watco stand. I had similar results on the boxes (I will post in a minute-).
Critique? Please, blast away, while it may be gratifying to hear nice words, I plan to do two more of these at some point, I know I can make them better, with your help.
Made this for my son for xmas. My own design. His music teacher likes it, so I’m presently making two more to sell, one to the teacher, maybe one on Etsy. I am using curly maple this time.
The stand pictured is plain maple and walnut, with Watco and wax finish.
