Looking for John Stockard Dulcimer Stand
Oh my goodness, this is just awesome! Thank you so much for sharing!
You are VERY welcome! Let me know if I can help you any more! Like I said, it wasn't perfect, but is light-weight, folds up, and adjustable. I did have a little trouble stitching the shelf liner onto the fabric, but it is helpful so you don't get the instruments slipping and sliding.
Ok - for my stand (which is a double-wide) I used the following:
(4) - 1"x2"x40" - for the legs
(3) - 3/4"x20" - dowel (for the outside leg and center)
(2) - 3/4"x18 1/2" - dowel (for the inside leg)
(2) - 26" lengths of chain (this makes the stand height adjustable)
(4) - hooks to attach chains to
Fabric, shelf liner and stain
While it isn't perfect, it certainly has served me well! I made it double-wide so I could keep 2 instruments on it, and switch them easily, especially if playing out. Let me know if you have questions.

I will try to get the pic and measurements this evening!
A keyboard stand makes a decent alternative also. The height is adjustable. I used a small piece of shelving covered with a piece of shelf-liner on top of the keyboard stand. This works good, but isn't real handy if you are taking it out to play.
I also made my own stand a few years ago. I could post a picture and some measurements if you want to make your own, or have someone that could make it for you.
5 years ago
I don't have a Stockard stand, but I do use a waiter's tray table like the one above, that I got at a restaurant supply store for about $25.
