Federal Style Music Stand

This music stand is made from mahogany with Brazilian satinwood inlay and holly stringing, along with ebony accents. The desk portion is crotch mahogany veneer on a solid mahogany substrate, with satinwood and a custom made banding. The banding is made from holly and ebony and depicts the first five measures of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony in a pattern that repeats.
The desk is supported on a hexagonal post fitted into the turned column and fixed in place with brass and mahogany pins.
The finish is shellac.
The piece was exhibited at The Fine Furnishings Show in Rhode Island in 2013 and received an award as Best in Show – Traditional Work.
Additional photos can be seen in my website.

That’s very lovely work. I chuckled at the fourth photo, because I just remade this part for my own wooden music stand (made from a kit) for about the third time. My kids keep breaking that part in various creative ways.

As a woodworker and musician, that’s probably the most insanely gorgeous, detailed, and meticulously designed and executed music stand I’ve seen. I hope that somebody pays you a ton of money for that. It’s worth whatever price you want. The banding with the Beethoven motif is mind blowing.

Wow.

Beuatiful work. And you solved the problem of the ability to get the stand itself up and down plus in/out tilt nicely. Enjoy it.
