One of the things I really have enjoyed is making woodworking projects for my family, especially those twin grand daughters. I made this for Bryanna, the musical one. I worked from my own ideas and came up with this. My original thoughts were to make the column round on the lathe but prospect of making it telescoping at close tolerance could prove difficult so I decided on a square profile. I made it out of some mahogany I had and some brass stud fixtures I found at the hardware store. These were definitely the most expensive part of the project I worked it out so it would fold up for easy storage. I am around a lot of musicians and have noticed that storing and transporting music stands is a bit of a hassle. I turned my own knobs and came up with a clamping method that holds everything securely and allows for vertical adjustment from seated to standing heights. There are 28 separate wooden components. I finished them with Tung oil before final assembly.
I think she will like it.
