Picture of Make a Music Stand From Spare Parts

My girlfriend is a music major and she needed a music stand in order to practice. As it turns out, music stands aren't cheap, so I decided to build her one from some parts lying around my basement. (I did have to buy a few things).

Arguably, the parts lists is a bit long, but I had most of the supplies and even purchasing all the parts should only run you around $15.

1x 1/2" PVC T-Connector
2x 1/2" Two Hole Strap
