  1. William & Mary period bookstand reproduction

    I made this, and a second, bookstand as Christmas gifts for my mother and sister. The plans are from Popular Woodworking, I think the Oct. 2010 issue. The only variation from the original plans is that, since I don't have a lathe, instead of turning the feet I used drawer knobs that I...
