I made this guitar stand for the father of two very good friends of mine for his 50th birthday.
The design is basically a copy of the “Take a Stand” line of guitar stands, but with the company being based in America it would have been pretty difficult to get one over here in Australia before the big date, so I decided to make one him on instead.
The stand is made entirely out of Westen Australian Sheoak wich would have to be one of my favorite woods, its got an unmistakable grain pattern with amazing ray flakes that you just dont get in any other australian hardwood.
Construction is very basic, with a simple mortice and tenon secures the stand to the base, and that is held in place with screws (no glue so it can be disassembled), The jaw up top that holds the guitar is just made out of off cuts from the slab and held in place with a single dowel and glue.
Finished with my go-to Danish Oil finish, and a single coat of buffing oil.
