This is a walnut guitar stand with some purple heart laminated in. I tried to do something different with the guitar neck support and at the bottom where all the pieces come together. I think I came out much better than the first one. I am going to do something different with the bottom piece on the next one. I used leather for the guitar contact points and this in itself was a challenge because of the corners. But I figured it out and it worked. This is bent lamination for the curves. both pieces have five 1/8 inch strips glued down with Titebond II. I finished it with five coats of tung oil polished to a high shine.
Let me know what you think. Love the feedback.
Thanks for looking.

This is absolutely gorgeous Eddie.I love the gentle curves and the leather accents.How did you attach the leather? As well are you worried about the short grain on the two feet breaking off over time or if someone accidentally bumps into it?

Boy, Thanks for the comments. the leather was attached using contact cement. You have to be careful applying it because it just gets on everything. As for the end grain, I selected some nice grain lumber and actually did drop it a few times with no damage other than some dings which sanded out easy enough. I have thought about laminating some cross grain in it to give some accent and strength. Maybe on the next one just to see what it would look like. Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous! I like everything about this: design, wood selection and the finish is great!

Very nice. I don’t play guitar but this stand makes me wish I did.
Very well done.

Very nice. My son plays the guitar and I would like to make him one. Would you mind if I copied you work?
