My daughter is slightly interested in the guitar, so i found a cheap one and made a quick stand for it. All cherry leftovers, with cork strips where the guitar touches. Through mortices, and danish oil as a finish.I taped off the cork with blue painters tape, and that kept the oil off the cork very well. I kinda like what I ended with the feet.

I got an immediate grin, “thank you” and “I like it”, so that was worth it. If she keeps at it, I might have an excuse to make a guitar.

Nice Mike, looks great.

Good luck if she gets more than slightly interested and you have to make one – instrument making is hard.
