I made this from ash on the bandsaw. It was my first woodworking project. It measures approximately 6’ wide by 4’ high. I purchased guitar holders and mounted them from behind to hold my husband’s guitars. If you look closely, you will also see 3 vertical blue painted support beams. I painted them to blend into the wall color. I wanted to make sure the piece would support the weight of the guitars. Jay would die if they fell and broke!!

What a cool idea! Nicely designed it appears to be well constructed (can’t have those guitars bouncing off the floor). Is the cleft ash too? It shows up nicely. Well done! Welcome to LJs!

Anything with a bass clef on it is good. That is a good idea and well executed!

Hi Rick,
The clef is red oak, gel stained, and lacquered.
I really enjoyed making it. I will admit, I checked on it hanging, all loaded with Jay’s guitars, every 10 minutes the first few hours it was up…just to be safe. :)

Welcome to LumberJocks. What an awesome way to not only store but display the guitars.

No Taylor, but Jay’s got an Ibanez acoustic, an Ibanez 5 string SR 885, a Fender jazz fretless, a Hofner contemporary, and an Olympic 6 string acoustic.

What an excellent idea indeed! Congratulations on this great and well- executed concept. Being part of a company making bass guitar picks available, we think this is truly inspiring and your husband is lucky to have a partner who knows how to showcase such good guitars.

Have your say...
