How about a photo of the tilt mechanism? Does it use holes like the height adjustment?
How did you join the pieces of the letters together?
I need to make one of these for my daughter who is a choir teacher.

Very good work. I did one for my music director at church but didn’t have a plan to go by; I did borrow the design from someone else, but had to sorta “wing it” on the tilt operation. I’m not totally pleased with my end result. Yours looks rugged and personalized and should be enjoyed for many, many years.
