Just recently started woodworking and my brother is a classical guitarist so this was an obvious project for me..
The main footrest is reclaimed white oak with a leather pad and the scissor supports on the side are mahogany plywood i pulled off of some drawers (reclaimed) and some 3/8” dowels. There is no metal in the project.. sanded down with 400 grit and very light coat of minwax red mahogany stain and finished with a few coats of pastewax

thanks for checking out my project.

That is very cool. One of my brothers is going to graduate in December, and he is studying classical guitar as well. Did you do this from a plan, or is it something you came up with on your own.

Thanks for all the comments guys. this is actually the second one i made, didn’t have any plans or drawings the first one i made didn’t fold flat so i went back wrote down some measurements and made the corrections but it was basically a sunday afternoon in the garage with a big glass of ice tea just working it out..

if anyone wants the dimensions of the cuts let me know..

awesome Jordan! I love that it folds down and is easy to transport. I just started guitar and after trying one of these at my teachers house, decided I needed to try to make one. :D Would you mind sending me the measurements as well?? Thanks a bunch!

I have been looking for plans to this all over the internet. Plenty are sold on ebay for $14.00+ but no one is posting the plans. I figure the lengths have to be kind of correct. I would not mind a copy of your plans if you do not mind. My wife and I are considering learning Guitar. I’ll buy that though, LOL
