Music Stand

I volunteer with a group that presents folk music concerts. The performers often want a small table on stage to hold drinks, spare instruments or electronics, and we provide bar stools, speakers, or whatever we can find to do the job. For a recent concert, a particularly disreputable stool was used, and another volunteer suggested to me that we needed a small collapsible table for this (Collapsible since we have very limited storage space.)

I decided to build something, and recalled that we sometimes are asked for a music stand, which we don’t have, so I designed this stand to work as both a table and music stand – the top can be set horizontal for table use. The height can be adjusted from about 30 inches to over 50 inches.

The top is baltic birch with maple edging, and the feet are maple. The post is “mystery wood” (possibly pine) found in the lane.

Looks great. How do you adjust the height?

Jojy: The smaller part of the post slides inside the larger. There is a knob and bolt about 3” below the top of the bottom section that presses against the upper post to hold it. I’ll try to get a picture of that side on Friday.

SheriDi: Thanks! Yes, I have to take the blame for it.

Nice detailing on the feet also. I like the simplicity, yet well-thougt of design.
