I play a few instruments, and each of them are a work of art in their own right. Most good instruments are.
So my wife has always joked that, being in Texas, I should have a flute rack in the back of the pickup, since I didn’t have a gun rack.
Well, I finally took a look around at different racks I’ve seen and, as usual, threw a little something into the design.
I got a piece of curly maple and cut it so that I’d be able to put almost all of my instruments on it. There are 7 slots, and if I’d been thinking, I’d have cut another slot on the top for the tenor recorder.
So. First picture shows the first side cuts and the second side ready. I only had a hand drill to make the large circular cuts. The second picture (when I take it soon) shows the completed piece with instruments.
I cut the slots so that the bottom curve of the drilled holes was lower than the slot to keep the flute held to the rack rather than possibly rolling out.
