This my guitar stand I made from walnut. I start my design in the computer. I use AutoCad and I draw it in solid modeling mode. Once I have the design, I print it in 2D image at full scale. Then I spray the back of the print with an tempory adhesive and lay it on wood. I use the print to cut it with the bandsaw.

I like this design it reminds me of a musical note, I have to do a couple guitar stands, the problem I am having is he wants the stands to sit on either side of a rustic/abstract modern shelving unit that curves in on each side. So I admire your design, it may sound like a simple project, but the blending of function and beauty takes both inspiration and sweat

I like the flow of it, for sure. Nice piece!

Great Stand. Don’t let Obi give you a hard time he builds great guitars.

Best looking guitar stand I’ve seen too! Much, much, nicer than those cheap metal ones with what looks like surgical tubing to protect your gear. This one probably shows up most guitars.

Hmmmm…you now have me pondering a version!

Really beautiful! I’m looking at my 4 guitars with manufactured stands. I’m just disgusted that I didn’t think to build some nice stands. Your’s is beautiful.
