Very nice. The “angel” of adjustment took me a moment to figure and brought back memories of long long long ago with an economics professor at UCLA, Uzi Segal, who pronounced it as the “angel of tanyency.” Very thick accent.

very unique stand and spelling has nothing to do with saw dust but you really should pay attention to your floor, quit scratching it lol

Love this and have been thinking of making one for my wife. How did you handle the height adjustment? I see a pin there on the back – does the center support slide up and down with a series of holes the pin slides into or is it spring loaded so it doesn’t fall out or get lost?

LOVE this idea. I have a folding stand that I rarely put away and it is so ugly sitting in the living room. This would be way nicer to look at all the time!
