Triple Trumpet Stand

A friend who has seen the stands I have been making asked me to make him a triple stand; one each for trumpet, piccolo trumpet and flugal horn.

They are in Birch ply, one piece of Australian hardwood and a piece of Purple Heart strategically placed.

The stand is an old street sign I had lying around which has been bent to 3 identical shapes, the turned pieces having a piece of threaded rod glued into the base then holding everything together with wing nuts.

They are so cool!
Amazing how beautiful plywood can look, when treated right.
Love the picture with the glue up and stand, next to eachother.
Sweet music for the eyes.
Best thoughts,

Fantastic! Nice to see small scraps of wood put to use for making something so beautiful!
If I built one of those for 3 instruments I’d have an excuse to buy another horn!!!
I had a Mellophone once but it was the French Horn style (only the valves were played with the right-hand which felt real odd) so I gave it to my niece’s husband who plays with a band in Green Bay.

I love the layering work that you did. It really makes it quite stand out I think! :)
