This is a project I finished recently as a way to display my other hobby. I made 4 different trials before I finally settled on the three you see here.

They are made of Red Oak and stained to match the desk they hang above.

My carpentry skills are not the greatest, nor are my photography skills, but I enjoy it nonetheless!

I’ve been a lurker on this site for a while, and decided I’d start posting a bit.

Be Kind, I’m an amateur.
I’ve added another picture to show how they are standing. The black piece is a pre-manufactured trumpet stand that has legs on the bottom. I simply took the legs out and found a dowel that would fit in the hole, then drilled the dowel into the base and slid on the stand.

Making the stand would have been more fun, but funds don’t allow for the purchase of a lathe…. yet!

I’d say they really blow! (shameless trumpet player joke…;-)

Very nice work! I like the wood choice, it sets off the brass really well.

Is that a fluglehorn up front?

I play fiddle – it’s a drag….;-)

Gotta love that grain.
The gift of music is to be treasured, and you’ve elevated it higher with these beautiful stands.
Thank you for sharing. Welcome to the madhouse. Pull up a straight jacket and join the party.

Thanks everyone.

RonPeters… Yes that is a flugel you can see, it’s not a terribly nice one though, I don’t get too many calls to use it. But I plan on making a stand for it too. I’m just trying to determine if I want to do it the same way or maybe in a horizontal fashion.

BigTiny… I love the grain too. I chose a big, wide grain so that it wouldn’t compete with the intricacies of the instrument.

That’s pretty cool. I am also a trumpet player. I’m trying to figure out what kind of horns you have there. On the right, it looks like a Bach 37, maybe a Getzen in the middle? What about the left? Is the Bach(on the right) plated in Gold? If so, how do you like it?

Good eye, that is a Bach 37 on the right. It was my first nice horn that I bought back in High School. But it’s not gold, just very worn silver.
In the middle is a custom Schilke X3, my main workhorse these days.
And on the left is my pride and joy, a 1949 Martin Committee Deluxe, built before my parents were born!

I would like to make a trumpet stand shelf like the one you’ve posted here. My question is, what is the piece you used to hold the trumpet and how is it attached to the bottom of the shelf? Could you share where you purchased the “stand”? Thank you!
