I built this stand based on an design I came across online. I wanted a suitable piece that would be attractive and showcase my “new” banjo. The instrument used to belong to a dear friend and mentor who passed away a couple years ago. I think he would be proud of the work…now to sharpen my picking skills!

I also wanted a design that I could tear down and move fairly easily. It’s not pictured, but he neck is attached to the base by a couple of key slots. It’s made of walnut, cherry, and oak.

SWEET!! Very nice work I may have to borrow that design! That looks very similar to a banjo that I have.
