    knockdown guitar stand in cherry - (video)

    Hi Everyone,

    My son is learning to play the bass guitar. For his birthday, I promised to make him a guitar stand. We wanted something nice, so that the guitar could be out on display in his room, instead of hidden away in the guitar case.

    After looking around online I came across takeastandinc.com. They sell a very interesting guitar stand, with lovely flowing lines. Even more importantly, their stand comes apart. I was very interested in making a knock-down stand, so that it would be easier for him to move or transport.


    My design is based on one of their designs. It is not a direct copy -- for one thing I have no idea what the dimensions are of their product. But it is heavily influenced by them.









    Here’s my build video of the process:

    Wow, That is nice. I've got a few of the metal mass produced ones, but clearly I need to copy your copy of their design!

    Nicely done Art, that's a beautiful stand.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Beautiful lines on that piece. I also like the understated mix of woods.

    Feel free to copy my copy, just be sure to make a prototype like I did... it's tricky

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. I was very pleased with how it turned out.
