Very nice Barry. How about a step by step how to? smile
Very cool indeed. Much nicer than the stuff that I have bought.

That is fantastic.... now I know while in chat Pierre said he was looking at your music stand.  🙂  That is ABSOLUTELY cool.

That is one dang fine music workstation, Barry!

Nice looking, efficient, multi-purpose, well laid out.  I would call it a prime example of when a musician thinks on a situation and applies their experience to come up with a design and then uses some considerable care and skill to build a solution to the problem. 

thumbs-up

I love it. The pencil holder was the best. How about a rosin holder that mounts the rosin so you just take the bow and run it over without having to hold the rosin.  Looks to me like you got that from a Yankee, because it is pure Yankee ingenuity.

Good one Barry,

I only have a matt black steel stand, but you have given me an idea for holding my tuner and I-Phone for when I am listening to click tracks.

They usually fall off the little ledge especially when I have a bucketload of music sheets on them too

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

Holy music stands, Batman!

That's quite an incredible stand you got there! I bet if you started making those, you could sell them for at least $200 each.

I've seen wood music stands sell for over $100. Just plain stands, not with all the fancy stuff you added to it.

Is it adjustable?

Barry, you inspired me!  I've been wanting a violin rack for a couple of months; actually ever since Kevin's urging to tinker with a few.  So I worked on this for about 3 weekends and finally finished yesterday!

Looks very good, Fred!  I like how you used violin scrolls for decoration.

This is probably going to be a dumb question, but I'll ask anyway.  What are the light colored circles along the front edge?   Are they a decorative accent or do they serve some purpose?

Thanks Daniel.

Lol; it's "bling" Daniel; they're inset mother of pearl finger buttons.  I just wanted to incorporate a few string instrument accents.

Wow, those are some seriously beautiful pieces of craftsmanship! clap

I didn't factor a music stand into my violin budget, but quickly realised I needed one. So, I've built my own. It's certainly not as fancy as yours, but it does its job – and I think I get MacGyver points for the construction...

Fred, that is a masterpiece. What a nice job, now you only need three more to fill it.

Beautifull work.

I've been a cabinet maker for 48 year's but this is what I use, not quite as sophisticated as Alma's.

Awesome music stands Barry and ftufc!  Must take a lot of patience!  Would love to do something like that one day and make a violin as well :)
