This is a project I’ve been working on for a while, and I finally finished it. There are a few flaws in it, but i won’t point them out. I’m sure they will be easily. I’m a reader in my church and my reading stand was an old metal sheet music stand. So i decide to build one. Now I just hope the Church will allow me to bring it in. The top raises for reading and lowers when notin use. A small drawer for storage, and two shelves for holding other books. THe moulding an after thought. I thought it would dress it up a bit.

Thanks Monte, The design came from a set of plans I ordered.
Thank you Leith, I’m suppose to be in S.C in a couple of weeks, to attend the Graduation from Marine Basic Training of a young family member. I hope I can make it.

I like that stand quite a lot. The church should be proud of it. I’m also a fan of that chair just behind the stand. It’s quite unique too!!
