A Ukelele case-cum-music stand Mk1

I have just come up from the workshop with my prototype ukelele case, which doubles as a music stand. I have to admit that I am delighted with it. It will need tweaks and Mk2 would be more elegant, but for now I am happy. The lid splits in half. The smaller part of the lid acts as a prop and the larger turns over to form the music rest, which is held on an adjustable head that tucks inside the case next to the uke. I have made liberal use of velcro for locking, fixing and adjustment.

(by the way, for my non-Latin-reading friends, cum does not mean what you think. Put between two nouns, it means "with" or "together with")
