I can’t decide if this guitar stand is a long lost Shaker design or if it would come from the Ikea custom shop. If such a place existed, the guitar stand might be called Yngwie. Spruce with Red Cedar tenons.

My second flat top, an OM, it’s been strung up for six weeks and wants a final bit of polishing.

Cheers fellas, thanks for commenting.

David, yes my design and I don’t have plans. Make a cardboard pattern of a dreadnought and find your angles that way. The first one I just screwed together and adjusted here and there till it worked.

A note, smaller body guitars will sit closer to the floor. I’m going to raise the bottom pegs, in future, to allow for end pin jacks and straight leads. Be sure to post pics.

To be called the “Yngwie” , it’d have to be all beat up with the finish scuffed off in places.
I like it!
