While I was back visiting my parents, I noticed that my Dad had been playing his guitar every night. He hasn’t really picked it up for a few years, so it was something unexpected. I also noticed that he just propped it up in the corner when he was done with it. Because of this, I decided to make a guitar stand for him for Christmas.
The design is shamelessly stolen from http://www.takeastandinc.com/ . The wood is some curly cherry that I’ve been holding onto for a while now since Cherry is his favorite wood. Since it needs to be shipped, it can be easily broken down into 3 pieces. The head piece which holds the guitar is wrapped with double stick tape and bicycle grip tape.
Finish is Garnet Shellac, then rubbed with #0000 steel wool and paste wax to give a nice satin sheen to it. Quick and easy build for christmas.
