Walnut tree was cut in 1935 by my grandfather, and father. Dad gave me 4 saw mill cut boards about 20 years ago. I had them planed down about 6 months ago when all at once I decided what do make with the walnut. Made 2 banjo stands, both are different.

Looking for plans for a music stand now.

I took up playing a Banjo about 3 1/2 years ago.

Very nice. I made a similar banjo stand a while back from mahogany.

I will tell you what a banjo luthier told me. Stands like this keep him in business. When banjos fall the same thing always happens. The neck breaks. If you have kids or pets it is likely only a matter of time.

I stewed about it when I was told this because I liked the stand I built and wanted to use it. So I decided on a simple addition that I think makes this issue go away. I went to a Michaels or a Hobby Lobby – can’t remember which-and got some 18 inch strips of leather that color-wise were a good match for the wood. I screwed them to the back of the legs and just tie up the banjo with them.

Now you can bump it kick, try to knock it over and it goes nowhere.

Just something to consider.

There are pictures here if you are interested.
