A very talented young woman very dear to me was treating herself to a new Taylor Guitar. I needed something to give her for Christmas and this is the result.

I got my inspiration from another LJ project I saw about 3 or so years ago and the pleasing shapes of musical notes on a staff. I used the French curve extensively in forming the pattern. The individual pieces are butt jointed together and reinforced with screws and bung covers. I used Walnut, Red Oak and Cherry for these stands. Not shown in these pictures, I used soft rubber weather-stripping to cover all surfaces that the guitar might come into contact with except for the neck cradle. It I lined with felt padding.
The finish was Teak oil, rubbed and finished with furniture wax. This was a simple project. I hope they like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

The result is stable and fits many sizes of guitar. My time being in heavy demand this year I built only these three. Thanks for looking. Merry Christmas!

I like the design, very nice and pleasing to look at. I am sure it looks even better with your talented young friends Taylor sitting on one. Well done!

What a great idea! I may have to borrow your borrowed idea and make one for my wife so her guitar will be out and handy.
