Fast and furious indeed! I sometimes have quick projects like that which I think I will come back and clean up later. I almost never do, but sometimes the rough finish tells its own story…

Somebodies been watching Uncle Roy on the WoodWrights Shop. Yeah those are a quicky project, pretty fun, and a good skill builder too.

Actually, I grew up seeing this small stool made with this technique. I made one myself copying that one a few years back, then watching Roy Underhill I realized that you could actually make a book stand!

Roy doesn’t preach it that much, but that simple book stand has educated thousands of woodworkers to hand tools, and along the way, chiseling to a line, sawing to a line, the benefits of accurate marking, and controlling a chop, probably for some a little bit of whittling too. Plus how cool is it to make a wooden hinge? Especially one that stays as part of it’s whole. It’s a veritable learn-a-thon.

Not sure who to give it’s more modern credit to, The Schwarz was on this stand heavy, but you know Roy has that TV thing going on, so he can make it mainstream just by deciding he wants to.

Small and quickly made is always good. I’m looking for projects like this very kind to get me going. It’s a very nice clean design, something the Shakers might have made if they had tablets.

Thanks, it’s great and useful for books. It is an old design.
Here you can see one useful guide to making this.
