When I gathered my gear up I discovered that I could not find my wire music stand, it could be anywhere. I may have given it away or left it in a church some place or......I don't know, abducted my aliens!. Not a real issue, I hate those flimsy, folding wire music stands anyway.
I have a wood working shop so I made myself a good sturdy, useful music stand.
At this point the bottom section of the stand is not finished. Probably I will stain it black too, but for this week I am going to leave it unfinished so that the wood is obvious.
The whole project was made from re-claimed or left over wood. The body of the stand is re-claimed spruce 2 x 4. The section connected to the top is a bit of oak trim I had laying around, it is fairly thin and so I wanted oak's strength. The face is a bit of door skin.
The stand is adjustable for angle with a bolt and wing nut. I had the threaded stock available to make the bolt.
I cut a channel in the 2 x 4 using dado blades into which the oak stem fits. There is the possibility of adding adjustment for height later, currently it is made by me, for me, so it fits.
I would go with the hard wood/soft wood combination on the next music stand too. I soft wood base/body is not very heavy and the hard wood stem and legs are small yet strong.
Making a project from mixed wood pretty much means it needs to be darkly finished or painted to get a consistent looking finish.
There is a sofa table lurking in the back ground but it involves some heavy machining, and my back it not allowing me much heavy lifting just now. Later I the week, I hope.
