This sides of this 5-place guitar rack are constructed from 3/4” Oak-veneer plywood with edge banding, and the cross-members are solid Red Oak. The lower supports are padded with 1” low-density upholstery foam, covered with black textured crushed velvet.

Nice job – looks like you customized it for your specific guitars?

Actually yes – that’s why the crossmember is RIGHT on top of the heels. I built it for my son and his shorter body guitars. The “full size” guitars I put in it for the photo almost didn’t fit. I’ve made 3 of these so far – this one, one that was just 3 standard size acoustic places, and one that was 7 spots for electrics (or thin body acoustics).

great work…i need to be doing this for my guitars.

But what other options do you know that are non-slip and non-marking that can be used as padding?
