My brother’s birthday was a while ago and I thought I will make something instead of buying. He enjoys playing the guitar and one thing I’ve noticed is that when he puts the guitar down it tends to fall over, especially when his 2 small ones are running around.
So I’ve looked at a few designs and came up with my own version. I used some African rosewood and a nice piece of pine I had lying around. Some jigsawing, long screws and dowels to plug them later and I had what I was looking for. Finished with BLO and some floor wax. My wife is into crafts and she had these felt-like adhesive strips that I could attach where the guitar rests in order to make it stand sturdy and protect the guitar finish.
I forgot to take photos before I gave it to my brother. I asked if he can just give me a quick shot of the stand and professional photographer he is provided me with these shots. I think I will have to give him more gifts in future so I can get quality shots like these for all my projects :)
