Over the last few Months or so ive been working on a guitar stand in my Wood Work class at high school. And to be quite honest, im pretty proud of her...



Obviously she isnt as impressive as some of the guitars and stuff some of you guys can make but its something different which you dont see much on these forums (i think )

If this is in the wrong forum or anything please just let me know, ive been lurking a while but this is my first real thread .

People absolutely love to see horrible accidents and murders, as well as any sort of fighting really. Just look at the news. We wouldn't watch it if it was boring.

That looks a lot better then the one I made in high school shop class. Mine is now used by my old bass players dad as a rack for his fishing poles...

Better than alot of stuff we see comign out of our school.


Does the underside of the guitar rest on the wood? Might be an idea to put a tastefull looking carpet scrap there? To protect the bottom side?


But nice job

I've been thinking of building some sort of multi guitar stand so I don't have to keep all my guitars in their cases and this one looks perfect! I just might have to copy your design I might just have to modify it a little to fit a couple of acoustics.

Its a westfield les paul copy, im not sure what model number it is though. Shes named "Lesley" though

Ive got a lot of CAD and Drawings in my Tech folder but thats been sent away for marking im afraid, but ill have a look what i can find on my school documents as soon as possible, but most of the joints are just channels routed out and then the two sections of wood are glued and screwed together. If that makes any sense

I think I get ya . If you can find those CAD drawings that will certainly help with some dimensions. What type of wood did you use?

That looks great, i'm itching to build one of these now. Is the black edge of the wood where it holds the neck padding or just decorative?

I used 12mm ply for everything except the back, i used 6mm for the back and the Rails are 18mm Pine dowels i think.

If i can remember correctly its 960mm high, 540mm wide and 440mm deep. But dont hold me too that

The black strip is padding but i think it looks quite nice as well

This stand
I enjoy looking at it.

I would've put a rotating holder where the neck goes right on the padding.
Obviously Fassa.

that looks like a cozy place for a guitar
HILT!
