Microphone Music Stand

I play music,and don't like music stands can't seem to get them where I want to get them,and if you're like me, I have a hard time seeing the music cause they seem so far away,I had a microphone music stand a few years ago but you know how it is somehow things just get away from you,in this town where I live they just don't have a good music store anymore so I figured I'd make my own.

Step 1: Microphone Music Stand

Take a piece of wood 3x 20 or what ever size  you want split it down the middle,then drill a3/4 inch hole in it then turn it on it's side and drill two holes in it and put 2 wing nuts through it,then 2 holes at the bottom and 2 bolts and wing nuts that's to attach the top.

Step 2: Microphone Music Stand

I made the top 18x 20,notched 3/4 inch at top so it won't move, drilled 4 holes at the bottom 2 so they can hold the top slate and the other 2 go to the other 3x 20 piece at the bottom attach the bottom piece to the mike stand,then attach the top screw it all together and there you go simple a music stand and mike stand all in one, I hope this will help,if I didn't make it clear as I should sorry,I'm not a good teacher at all.

    I saw what you was doing and it seems simple enough to make with some modifications

    I don't understand how the stand is assembled, much less how it manages to lean away from the mic stand. What is the 3/4" hole for? You say "slate" - are you using actual rock? This looks like a really cool project, but I don't really understand how it comes together.

    I just saw this. It is a good and clever solution to a problem. I would think it would work for a few sheets of music, but some music books might cause the microphone stand to fall forward. Your solution also eliminates trying to look around or look through the microphone stand. Your steps were clear enough, despite your concerns.
