This is a guitar stand that is going to be a Christmas present for my daughter. Still not quite finished with it but far enough to post. This is made out of hard maple a\with purple heart for the accent pieces and plugs. As I was resawing the maple there was an unseen defect, split, in the wood and I lost a bit of maple that I was counting on. Also, as I ran the thin strip of maple, 1/4 in thick , thru the planer the natural curl that pulled it upward, splintered the strips and again I lost some maple and purple heart. oh well, live and learn. If I had a drum sander, this would have been a better option to get the strips down to 1/8 for lamination. I had no plans or idea where to start the project and had to figure out all the angles and visual dimensions by playing around with a prototype. All in all it came out really nice. The pictures are terrible but this is what I have to work with in my small workshop. Thanks for looking. Have a safe woodworking day.
