Folding wooden book stand

This is this year's birthday present for my wife.  She likes to do her Bible study at the table and I've noticed that she tends to prop up her Bible when she is studying so I designed and built this for her birthday.   Because is fold up it can be taken with her wherever she goes.

The stand is made of maple and the wooden hinges were made with individual pieces since I don't have a drill with the length to make a single pass for drilling the hole for the brass hinge pins.  The finish is shellac that has been buffed with 0000 steel wool for a fine matte finish.
