I copied this design of a guitar stand from a picture on another web site. Its made from Peruvian Walnut, Maple and Walnut inlay. This project was several firsts for me. Resawing, bentwood lamination and inlay. I used Gorila Glue for the lamination. Several articles on bentwood laminaton posted on LJ’s helped. Thanks to the members that answered my resaw questions. Not showing in the pictures, the maple has some nice figure. Its finished with a couple coats of oil and wax.

I love this stand. Always looking for nice/new stands to try. This one is both, I’ve never seen anything like it before. Great job!

My old Fender would look nice on this stand. Actually, any guitar would look nice. Very good.

Wow this looks great! The shape and wood really are pleasing to the eye. Well done. I got to know what is the cable on the wall doing? It looks like a jumper of some kind from one jack to another.

Thank you all. The builder of the stand said he used the profile of the his guitar body for the back curve. I did the same. I made the top laminated piece kind of match the bottom of the guitar and cut a rubber ball in half for the guitar to sit on. I’m looking forward to doing some bent wood furniture.

Ken, the previous owners of our house were wire crazy. They ran the phone and cable lines every where. That one comes from the basement up out the wall and back in up to my sons room. I’m sure there is a good reason why they did not just pull the wire up. Little by little the cable company and I have been taking care of it.

I.G.N , You need to hook up with a music store, Bet you could get some big money for those, it’s not just a guitar stand, it’s a piece of furniture. Great work. What is really neat is, very little of the beauty of it is hidden when it is in use. SUPER NICE

Ok, dumb question… the upright portion is -not- bent, correct?

Rob, not a dumb question. The upright portion was cut on the band saw, drumb and hand sanded. Inlay groove cut with router. Router the edge. I’d have to get into steam bending to form that…....Not that I would not try that.

This really is a very stylish guitar stand. I just showed it to my son as he plays guitar and he really liked it.

That is so beautiful and I love the graceful design. Awesome wood choices. So, you are saying you shaped the upright into that shape? Any reason why one wouldn’t laminate the layers on a wider piece and then use the bandsaw to cut the curved shape? Or was the bentwood treatment used on the bottom 2 curved pieces?
TIA,
Vicki
