Here is another version of the print stand done by Bill. Like the long drop clock, this is another one of my projects that sort of grew out of the wood. I made this slightly lower than the original one shown in Popular Woodworking’s book “Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects” to scale the height down a bit and make better use of the wood available.
Finish is clear over “Golden Oak” pore filler, with mortise and tenon for the spindles. The outer frames miters are reinforced with R3 mini biscuits and the legs are joined with #10 biscuits. For the “:stop”, I used Black Walnut for a little more interest.
I am looking at this as sort of as prototype, as I may build another one using some Asian design elements, or Greene and Greene details.
