Very nice piece. I especially liked the angle adjuster. Lucky daughter-in-law.

Wonderful design. Is it yours? My son is a professional musician and I have searched for just the right design without luck. The angle adjustment is great. Can I copy it?

I don’t have any “nice” plans for the stand, I usually design them on grid paper with a pencil, pretty crude, and then adjust dimensions as I go if they don’t look quite right when the wood starts to go together. The larger stem is about 2×2x26 and the inner stem that slides inside it is about 1 1/4×1 1/4×33. The stand has a slight forward lean to balance it. The music holder is 19 inches wide and about 13 inches high. I mixed the cherry and walnut slightly to enhance but not make it look too garish with too much mixing. It was fun to make. Thanks for all the feedback.
