This Guitar stand was commissioned by a client and I ended up building one for myself too. The ‘C arc and the bottom stand are steambent laminates of molave and ipIL wood. The base is also ipil. The body rest and the neck hold are both done in narra. I play the guitar but don’t read notes. I feel that the piece just seems to flow like a music note. Maybe that’s just me…

Have a great weekend guys!

Ah! another new thing I learned about my friend. It is another part of you. Music is another communication mechanism of the body.

Your work flows as music does! Nice Piece sir!

Beautifully done and it does have a lovely flowing movement to it. The guitar isn’t to shabby either. Thanks for the share.

Beautiful artistic flow to this piece. I’m curious about the contrasting dowels in the base. Are they functional?

not only is the design perfect for the guitar, but as always the woods of choice compliment each other in purity, perfect, maybe you should play for us a short clip of your favorite tune, and since your doing that, maybe a sing along as well…:)...love this piece Benji…

I don’t play guitar, but I know beauty when I see it. Outstanding!
