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).

Step 1: Parts and Supplies

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 32" long 1" diameter PVC Pipe
1x 32" long 1/2" diameter PVC Pipe
1x 1/2" PVC T-Connector
2x 1/2" Two Hole Strap
1x 5/16 Carriage Bolt
1x 5/16 Wingnut
4x 10-32 Bolt
4x 10-32 Wingnut
1x Poplar Craft Board
1x 2'x2' thin Plywood Sheet
1x Small piece of moulding

Power Drill
Some Drill Bits
1 1/4" Bore Bit
Hack Saw
Wood Glue
Tape Measure
Miter Saw (helpful)
Rigid Jobmax or like (makes things easier)
Spray Paint
Straight Edge
Piece of Hobby Foam (I used sub floor)
Safety Glasses
<p>Great project! I need some for my students, and this fits my budget - Thanks!!</p>
