Gallery Goodness, 26th September 2019

It’s been a week of mixed weather here, with the brightest of sunshine and the dampest of autumnal squalls. It’s also a week of somewhat mixed feelings, as work/school/university/pre-school has begun again in earnest for many of us. Yet, somehow, there always seems to be at least a smidgen of time available for a little woodworking, as demonstrated by today’s batch of brilliant work.

Adjustable Cherry Music Stand by Jeannie Grassi

Adjustable Cherry Music Stand by Jeannie Grassi

As a piano technician I try to re-purpose parts from old pianos into all of my woodworking projects. The scrollwork insert in the music desk came from an old upright piano and inspired me to build the music stand around it. The whole stand is made from cherry with hand made knobs for adjusting the height and tilt. The hexagonal shaft houses an internal hexagonal shaft with a T-groove routed along its length allowing a T-bolt to slide up and down for height adjustment. I like the elegant simplicity of Shaker style which inspired the shape of the legs.

    These are all excellent. The cherry music stand by Jeanie Grasse is absolutely breathtaking. I love the shaker like simplicity with the scrollwork contrast. Beautiful
