Music Stand Inspired By Sam Maloof

The material used is Claro Walnut (figured), Gaboon Ebony, and Bubinga; the ebony sides are reinforced with copper wire. The base of this music stand was inspired by an 18th century candle stand using cabriole legs and arris feet. The legs are connected to the center post with sliding dovetails.

The adjustment mechanisms are made from Gaboon Ebony and threaded to provide a relatively infinite number of adjustments. This allow you to easily adjust the music stand to your to your desired position.

The entire piece is sanded up to 400 grit and finished with Maloof's branded finish. Four coats of the Poly/Oil blend and two coats of the Wax/Oil blend.
