Stand with reader top: This stand is a replica of a family heirloom, thought to be built by James D. Wood (great grandfather), of Potsdam New York. The four shelves are dadoed into the ¾" uprights and are held in place by though tenon secured with wedge locking pins. At only ¼" thick, the shelves provide ample strength without obstruction and provide a delicate harbor for personal treasures. The reader top is fixed with sliding dovetails and slants to the front where a raised stop at the bottom edge holds a book or photo album at eye level. The joinery in this piece allows for disassembly should the need arise; the back is open. Many customized variations in the cutouts, material, and even shelf spacing are all possibilities. RDR101-05 Quartersawn White Oak, Lt Oak Stain and Varnish. RDR103-08 Black Walnut with Linseed Oil Finish.
