I built this guitar stand for my son for Christmas.
It is curly maple.

I used black Transtint dye followed by BLO, shellac and wax.

For details I used a stainless hinge and black leather.

With the hinge, it folds flat and is portable.

Thanks for looking….Merry Christmas

It is varying shades of black.
The flash distorts the color.

That guitar is my sons pride and joy.
He saved for a couple of years to buy it.
