It took me a while to finish this project (only because I couldn’t much time in the shop recently), but I guess it turned out unique…
As a musician, I wanted to make something I can use in lives, concerts, so I made a list. And this is the first project from the list.

The main part is cherry, and used several kinds of woods. While ash, Walnuts, Oak and some unknown wood… The back leg can be taken apart when I have to.

As a result, it works rally well, Very steady and looks really different (from what we can get really cheap at any guitar shop).

Now I want to make another version of guitar stand, which should be much easier to make.

Beautiful Junji. I haven’t a clue how to make things with that refined rustic look, but you sure do!

Very nice geetar stand, Junji. I’ve got about 4-5 geetar stands that I designed and built. Just haven’t got them posted yet. Kinda like yours in a way, except mine’s made of oak. I collect vintage Martin guitars(1940’s-50’s), and never have liked the crappy metal ones you find in music stores. Besides- the foam they put on those stands have a reaction to the nitrocelliuos finish on instruments. I had one—it got into the finish a little on my 1946 Martin D-28 Herringbone. So I came up with a design I thought would work—and it works good. I’ll try to get them posted so you can take a look and tell me what you think. Oh—and one other thing—my collection is protected by a company called Smith & Wesson!!!!! lol. What kind of guitar is that on the stand?
Looks like a Gibson, or maybe a Guild by the bridge and headstock. Looks old and played a lot—- like mine!!!

This is so great Junji!

You have given me some great ideas with some of my dead standing Tasmanian Blackwood ( Acacia Melanoxylon) which is too small to cut into boards but perfect for something like this. They were killed by severe frost ( for around here) some years ago but remaining standing and are mostly still quite solid and look beautiful when sliced in half.

I think I will adapt this idea to make a violin stand!

Thank you everybody, but that’s too much of compliments for me… haha.

I sure like the idea of “the wedged pin locking system”, it is very easy to make, and works really fine.

I really really wanna see your version of guitar stands, so please post them!!! (Of course your guitar too)
Now I already gave up to rob your guitar, but I still wanna steal your design or idea!
The guitar in the photo is Taylor 710. Bought this one about 15 years ago, and sounds really good.
I always like vintage Martin, but I never had a chance to own one yet, (they cost me way too much for me)
I am glad to find somebody with the same idea, HATE THESE CHEAP METAL GUITAR STAND!!!

Violin stand! Sounds really nice. Make sure to post the project here when you make it!
