WOOD GUITAR STAND

|I built this as an alternative to the rubber-coated metal stands, to avoid damage to nitro-finished guitars. It is made of poplar board and assembled with wood screws and bolts for disassembly.|
|This is similar to others, except I moved the neck support back so that the necks would tilt back, thus avoiding the need for restraints.|
|The base was the hardest
part. My initial design had these two base supports mounted so
that they could rotate. That didn't really work and this
configuration was a compromise that seemed to work for the various types
of guitars I had.
This version had the felt, but later that was replaced with carpeting to help prevent the guitar bodies from rotating in the stand.
|The neck support is the most difficult piece to make, since it involves a lot of hand shaping. Later, I put the felt on the entire front surface (see the guitar cabinet page).|
