My latest project, made for my youngest son. I put this together with White Ash and Walnut, with a polyacrylic finish. Rather than just something to hold his guitars, I wanted something that would display them. It came out better than I thought it would. Thought I would have to put some kind of support behind each section, but it turned out quite sturdy. I did glue support blocks behind the miter joints for extra support just to be sure my splined miter joints hold up.

Great looking project … you might do a little market research, but my gut feel there would be profitable market for this item … ebay maybe. Really cool design.

Great project Doug. My son has about 35-40 Guitars in his collection. He even had a special room and closet built in his new home to house all of them. I’d love to build a couple of these for him to use in his guitar room. Would you mind sharing some dimensions and the angles that you used for the miters?

That is really nice. Much nicer than a store bought metal multi stand. You are right, it is a display not a stand! I would second the last request if you would like to share..I own a few basses, and know a few gutarists that would love one of those!

this would be an asset on the stage at my daughter’s school when they are doing concerts!!
Love the “triangle” effect. Nice.

One of the LumberJocks (I forget who – my apologies) stated in another guitar project that guitars need to be stored by the neck. If this was extended to hold them off the ground more, do you think it would still balance? The way it is now looks intriguing, as they are self-supporting, if that makes any sense.

Very nice! I have a guitar and I’ve resisted buying one of those super-ugly metal stands for precisely this reason. The guitar is made of quilted mahogany for crying out loud! I’m not going to rest it on some stupid black metal pipe!

Jeez that’s a good idea! I’ve been using those crappy black steel stands that my wife just hates. This is a great idea and project, thanks for posting!
