Hi Gang,
I made this for my dad for Christmas and am just getting around to posting the pictures. I took ruff measurements from the 1950s metal stand that he keeps in his music room so I hoped it would fit most of his 30 something guitars that he has.
I didn’t follow any plans and only bought 2 boards and dowels and some plugs. The design is something that just came to me as I sketched out the shape on the quilted/figured maple. The Tiger Oak shape was fashioned from the Star Trek emblem as he is also a fan. The fuzzy stuff is real sheep skin!
There were no screws or bolts used here. I used the 1/2 walnut dowels and drilled completely through the maple when I made this. I finished it was satin lacquer.
I hope you all like it.

Wow – Excellent project.

Does your dad play gigs? If, so I hope he takes this with him on-stage.

Nice, nice work!

That is smokin’ hot. I too made a guitar stand for Christmas and haven’t even taken pictures of it yet, haha.

My father still plays gigs every now and then but his passion (other then wood working) is Jazz.
Here is his band’s website.
