A few years ago I made a music stand for my son. My sister-in-law plays the clarinet and my son plays both the flute and the clarinet. Every time his Aunt and Uncle visited my son and his Aunt would play duets using his music stand. There were several times she commented about his stand so my brother-in-law asked if I would make one for her. For Valentines day 2006 I completed this one.
When making my son’s, I had access to a lathe so his is turned the main up-right. When making hers I did not have a lathe so I boxed the main up-right.
Because this one was for a lady, I made it look like it was for a lady.
The design allows for the tray to be lowered to a height comfortable for sitting or standing and it can be tilted 90 degrees. (I don’t remember where I saw the original design, but I modified it a little to fit my needs)
The wood I used was red oak, finished in clear poly except for the harp which was stained rosewood and then covered with poly.
Making this one was a lot of fun. When my sister in-law came to the house she thought hers was another I made for my son, until her husband told it was for her: yeah she liked it.
