This is my first commission, its for a vey important client and accomplished carpenter, my Mother! Who’ll no doubt see this on here. (Hi Mum!)
Its an embroidery stand, or a pair of stands. they are designed to support an embroidery frame whilst its being worked on or display a finished embroidery. The cross pieces are height adjustable with a coach bolt and wooden nut at the front and a sliding wooden J Clamp at the rear. A large dovetail is used to join the uprights to the cross braces, thanks to Stumpy Nubs for the how to videos!
Its made of Ash for the uprights and feet and Iroko for the spars. The clamps are Iroko and Sapele. All done with hand tools from rough boards.
Thanks for looking
