Lutrin - ( Folding ) Book Stand in Walnut.
290 * 290 mm, when not folded
The hinges are constructed of Walnut, using a metal rod to connect the folding piece to the hinge. The hinges are glued with hide glue into their mortices.
The Lutrin is finished with several coats of a paste, made up from a mix of Tung Oil, Cold Pressed Linseed Oil and Beeswax. I use 000 steelwool to rub the mix into the wood leaving a satin surface to the touch.
