My son wanted a wall hanger for one of his guitars because the floor stand was taking up a lot of space in his small room. I looked online for some options and finally decided to just make one. I glued up some scraps of Mahogany (center strip), Maple, and Cherry (outside strips). I basically designed it as I was building it which always seems to work out pretty well for me. I knew he would probably change his mind on which guitar he wanted to hang and since they each had different style heads I wanted the hanger to accommodate either type. So I came up with a design that would let the fingers the head hangs on rotate to confirm with the shape of the guitar head. After I made the first one, he decided he wanted one for each guitar so I made two of them for him.
My wife shared pictures of them on Facebook which resulted in one of her friends wanting to buy a set. I just delivered a pair to her this weekend. That is the first project I’ve ever sold.
