no previous part Part 1 of Guitar Rack series Part 2: The crossbar »

I decided to make a guitar rack to hold up my guitar off the floor. It has spent several years on a cheap metal stand on the floor. I got some sapele outs to use for the short parts, but the backbone of the rack will be made with maple.

So far I made the bottom supports (with the general guideline/plan to the left of the supports)

I plan to dovetail the supports onto a plank across the back. This first one is hand done with a hand saw and chisels (I’ve used a handsaw and router to start the next one)


To join the cross plank with the backbone, I will use a modified half-lap joint. Pics to come when I finish the other dovetail and the joint.

Oh, and I had to glue the front of the support back on after dropping it on the floor.

Have your say...
