Today I completed this table / guitar display stand. This piece was commissioned by a friend of mine who is a luthier and owns a guitar shop. The guitar was signed by all the guests at his wedding. The lip on the top gives him the option of having an acrylic cover built to fit around it and cover the whole guitar. The woods are spalted maple and walnut. The apron is joined to the legs with mortise and tenon construction. The finish is tung oil and wax. I’ve had the shape of the legs in my mind for a while but this is the first project I’ve been able to use it on. It was a fun project and a nice break from my more untraditional builds.

Same here. The design wood choice the construction and finish Is firing on all cylinders. This is a 10 out of 10 project. Thanks for sharing .

Looks great and that’s a great idea having all them sign a guitar

I have some narrow veneer that has had me stumped, your use of the figured wood in the aprons is really neat.
The legs are great, but beyond my talent.

Have your say...
