This is probably quite a project, sadly there is nothing like this in the market and I’ve searched for days. My idea (honestly it would be great if music keyboard stands were this awesome) is to have a grand-piano-looking keyboard-stand that will be the envy of all your friends. This monster is a piece of furniture and it does more than just hold your keyboard. Well, the prototype on paper looks a bit like this and this thing must hold a good 80-100 pounds in case someone wants to put some heavy woofers on top. My questions are, how much would the wood cost average? How much would it cost to make? Finally, if I was to show this project to a woodworker how much should I expect to pay? I am aware this is an expensive project, but horrid looking keyboard stands (which are supposed to be furniture style) cost $1000 USD, which is too much for me. Wonder if this can be done for about half the price? Feel free to use my idea, honestly I wish companies would begin to manufacture things like this, they are not available. Apparently people need not worry about storage of sheet music anywhere around their keyboard stands. I really wanted something beautiful like this, sad nobody makes them! Just for the record, I dunno anything about woodwork!
Also please give me an idea about a similar items without door, with a sheet-music holder on top (perhaps one sitting in a slide panel you can pull out from inside the unit.
If you guys find it a bit hard to figure out please see this image as the stand should look something like this when closed: https://www.etsy.com/listing/219839831/vintage-drop-front-pine-childs-desk?ref=market
I saw a couple of great looking stands, this one custom made, but I need something more elaborate than that :) http://www.apdigitallight.com/2012/01/diy-digital-piano-stand.html
