Stand :: 2010
This music stand also holds the cello. Will be making a stand that only has a lectern, as a future project. I like its insect appearance, and 3 legs means it will always be stable. Am not completely happy with the walnut wood structure the cello rests on, I’d like to rework that part. Later.
The neck has angled cuts made in it, so the musician can easily grab the lectern, tilt it back, and then pull it up or down. Those cuts lock into a walnut ‘tooth’, which the picture illustrates. Am still working on joinery for tilting the lectern itself, for now I’m using a metal handle and screw. I despise putting metal components in woodwork, but this is the test piece. grinds teeth. heh
