This is an adjustable music stand I built to try out my bench top moritiser. The base is a cherry box that has the legs attached with stopped dovetails. A removable blackwood pin sets the height and a profiled slot in the back adjusts the pitch of the stand itself.
The cap on the base was made with custom molding from my table mounted router along with a top that has a scrolled hole to accept the upper part of the stand and conceal all of the joints beneath.
It was finished with a water based gel stain. I had some concerns about the stain going on evenly between the staves on top but they came out fairly well.

WMD – I like it. It looks like the finish came out really well. It appears to be quite functional. I did a portable one a few years ago with a black walnut case to hold it.

Great looking music stand, that cherry looks cool.
