Looks great to me that design presents a number of challenges, so I’d say you did a very nice job.

........And so good. I saw Roy Underhill make one of these on TWS out of just hand tools. I find the design and all fascinating.

Jim, there are no assemblies involved in the Roubo bookstand. It is carved and cut from one piece of wood! The hinge is chiseled out, and the body is re-sawed from both ends until it opens up. You can see Roy Underhill demonstrate the process here http://video.pbs.org/video/2172468729/
The one made here is very good, it’s not an easy project
