I’ve been slowly eliminating the barriers that keep me from practicing my guitar. One obstacle was having a comfortable chair to practice and play from. I kept my eyes open and spotted an old school desk/chair on the curb in someones trash pile. It’s very old white oak and had seen a pretty rough life before I took it. It had been sitting outside for quite some time and the legs had lost all the softwood to rot. The seat was warped and split into four pieces and there were plenty of splits and cracks that had been nailed and screwed over the years. At some point, someone cut the front leg that supported the desk arm.

The cradle for the guitar body is made with white oak which was kerf bent into a shape to match my guitar (000 size Martin). The pocket is lined with black automotive carpet. The headstock shaped neck rest is also white oak and is in place with three oak dowels. The tuning peg marks are black walnut inlays.
The stain is Michael’s Cherry, finish is spray applied water based poly.
