    Made this piece for a customer and friend to be used as an iPad cash register and cookbook stand (the business is food-related.) Made from solid oak.

  3. Roycroft Style Little Journeys Tabletop Book stand

    This book stand is based on the Roycroft Little Journeys tabletop book stand. The antique original measured 26"w x 7"h x 7" d (photo 5). The knock down book stand was shipped with a 16 volume set of Little Journeys stories. It had tusk tenons. My version is scaled down and measures 14" w x...

  5. Folding Book Stand

    First of several Christmas gifts I am to make. This is from a photo, by request of a granddaughter who studies endlessly and is an over-achiever. Made of Baltic Birch Ply, it is 13" wide and 10" deep, adjustable to three heights. Now to get on to the others…. What is everybody else working on?
  6. Live Edge Walnut Cookbook Stand

    A few years ago, a good friend of mine from college let me raid her childhood home's basement for woodworking tools. She knew that my brother had gone postal on me and demanded that he get to keep everything my dad left when he passed, so after her brother and husband got first dibs, I was...
  7. Walnut William and Mary Book Stand

    This past winter I started a project that went horribly awry, In the November issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine featured an article by Chuck Bender featuring a recreation of a great William and Mary Bookstand. I thought "What a great little project. That should only take a weekend and I can...
  8. Trivet - Tablet/book Stand

    A trivet? a tablet stand? a book stand? All of the above….... It's a trivet, that converts to an Ipad or tablet stand. Flip it over and it serves well as cookbook stand…. one advantage of this design is that toy can position both the tablet and or cookbook at just about any angle. The frame is...
  9. Desktop Book Rack

    Made from a few pieces of scrap maple and walnut. I got the basic design from an old woodworking magazine and added the walnut stripe to give it more pizazz.
  10. Artifact Display Tables

    These were a pair of custom commissioned display table that are one-of-a-kind. I really enjoy the design process and working with these clients gave me the opportunity to be a "problem solver" of sorts. She wanted bookshelves to display their collection of special books, while He wanted a way...
  11. Live Edge Walnut Cookbook Stand #2

    The friend I made the first live-edge cookbook stand liked it so much she commissioned me to make another for her sister's birthday. I made a few changes to this one - I used cyanoacrylate to glue the loose bark instead of epoxy, which was much less messy. Planing went much better, but walnut...
  12. Arts and Crafts Style Book/iPad Stand

    2×4s can appear to be ordinary items that are generally hid behind walls. However, with a little ingenuity and creativity the 5bf in a typical 2×4 can be transformed into toys, keepsakes, fine furniture … the imagination is its only limit. In this video, which is my entry into the Summers...
  13. Roubo Cellphone Stand

    That Roubo guy… Way ahead of his time. The hardest part here was figuring out how long the "legs" needed to be in order to prevent any tipping when touching the screen. → About 5 inches. I was also worried about cutting out the center of the shelf for the charging cable. Turns out, not a...
  14. Dual-position Walnut and Maple Cookbook Stand

    I built this cookbook stand for my wife as the last project related to our kitchen remodel. It's made of walnut with maple accent strips, finished with Watco Danish Oil. The back panel is 9" wide x 13" tall. The ledge is 1-1/2" wide, and its front lip is 1-1/2" tall. A 4-1/2" wide hinged rear...
  15. Book Stand in Walnut

    This book stand is made from walnut with a tempered hardboard base. This stand can be used on a desk or on your lap. My other book stand works nice on a desk, but cannot be used when reading from your lap, as you would while sitting in a chair. It is angled at 30 degrees. It is finished with a...
  16. music stand

    I made this music stand for a customer who had a maple and purpleheart harp. I love the contrast and she was pleased with the results. Thanks for looking.
  17. Tablet/Book stand

    I've been a lurker here for sometime but this is the first project I feel is decent enough to share. I am but a fledgling woodworker after all… It is a tablet/book stand for my better half for her birthday. She needed someplace to set her cookbooks that was easier to see than just lying them...
  18. Cherry Book Stand

    This is something my wife has wanted for years and years. It took me about a year from design to completion - mostly procrastination on my part. The finish is tung oil and paste wax. For her part she cried when it was finally finished. I'm glad she's happy with it. For my part I must say...
  19. A Simple Cook Book / iPad Stand

    Updated 12/17/12: I made a chain to keep the Cook Book / iPad Stand upright and it's working beautifully. I couldn't find exactly what I needed off the shelf, but I was able to make it using a few inches of jack chain and a small hook latch found at Home Depot. The dimensions of the stand are...
