I used the search but could not find anything. I want to build a double guitar stand out of wood. Here's the catch, I want it to be a tilt back amp stand for my VYPYR 15 with a guitar stand on each side. Also with a drawer for pics capos etc. Anyone have any plans or ideas?

I have an idea, I could draw up a crappy apint daigram if ye want?

EDIT:


- the whole construction is plywood; you know, the thick stuff? about 1cm thick

- apart from the hooks. you can buy rubberised tool hooks in B&Q, homebase etc. and (voice of experience!) they make great guitar hooks.

- the things behind the hooks are just extra bits of ply to stop the thread from poking out the other side, but i wouldn't just slap a bit of scrap on - i'd cut them specially to size and maybe champher them or something - looks a bit more classy

- there's a hole in the back to let air get into the back of the speaker,


- I'd put screws in as many joints as possible if it was me, but that's just personal taste.

- some hidden detail is missing - I forgot to show the hidden detail but there's a square plate in the bottom to hold the drawer in place that'll help the structural integreity aswell. alss, I would have the backplate overhang like the shelf for the amp. for a little bit more strength.

- finishwise, I reckon it'd be sexy with varish, or wax or something - something that shows the grain. I would be tempted to paint/varish/etc. it before it's full assembled for the last time, , I don't know though, I'll have to think about that...

EDIT #2:
didn't read last post sorry, you could just leave the hole out though, and cut a slot for the power cable to sit in.

My main idea is to build a cabinet type thing. It will have a tilted base for the amp to sit on and a closed back which will double as a way to close the back of the amp. It will have a hole for the power chord. I will have a drawer in the bottom to hold pics and amp chords my capo and other small objects. I will a guitar stands OR wall hangars built into the sides. I am leaning more towards stands so that the wood won't have to be super thick. I am on limited space. I have the tools and help from someone with more wood work experience then you could imagine so that is not a problem.

Nice man, thank you, great ideas. And yeah the slot works too, I mainly just said that in order to show that I wanted to use it toi close off the back of the amp. I am gonna start measuring the amp and stuff tonight.

Alright I started designing it, as of now it looks like there will be a "mailbox door" on the front instead of a sliding drawer. The door will be 12" in the front and the back of the cavity will be 3". I will post pics of my plans later if this is unclear. I will also have a shelf that is 9" deep by 17" wide. There will be an 8" tall back wall on this shelf. I will use some tool hooks or guitar wall hangars to hang 1 guitar on each side.

Haha, yeah I just fixed it, I was rushin out the door and just hit save w/o checking it. New one is a side view w/o the side panel on so you can see where the amp would be

It wont really be a drawer more like a mail box, like, hinge on the bottom and the door opens and theres storage inside.

either that or i might raise the amp 4 more inches and put a 6" deep drawer that slides out in the bottom.

I don't know anything about austrailia. Ok, I fixed the 2 pics, the images are to scale, I am going back to having a normal drawer I think. It will be 3 inches deep, 9 inches long and 17 inches wide.

EDIT: 1 more question, would topheaviness be an issue if the guitars are supported at the very top, if so I will make stands for them so the weight is on the bottom of the stand

I don't think so - most of the guitar's weight is in the body, so it'll still have a low centre of gravity either way.
I see you've taken a few pointers from mine; now i'll feel really guilty if anything goes wrong!

main things to watch out for when you're designing things like this is butt joints and unsupported corners - remember a triangle is stronger than a square.

This is a good idea. My woodworking teacher is always bugging me to come up with a project I think I'll do something like it. That's if I decide to keep the vibro king I'm getting in a few days.

dude, think about putting sum wheels on it if ur planning on moving it anywherre with the amp & stuff on it, but if its just 4 ur bedroom, it shud be fine without them

Bedroom. If I take it anywhere that would require moving it down the stairs so wheels won't help anyway.

1 issue I thought of is if I upgrade my amp in the future, because as much as it would cost to modify this when it''s do0ne I could build a new 1. However If I upgrade to a bigger sized amp and sell my vypyr I will sell the stand with it so I can get a better price.

So, never got around to building this due to time and money. Possibly reviving this project for summer?

I like this idea. I've been looking for something fun to build and this will get my amp off the floor.
Life is about taking risks, as long as the risks aren't too risky.
