Project Information

This is a guitar stand made from the trunk of a manzanita tree. It is one solid piece. The trees I use are usually on my property and they are never cut down live. They are dead manzanita trees that need to be removed! It is still drying and when it is, I will post a picture with the guitar in it. The electric guitars will sit right inside of the trunk, and it leans back on the branches. There are two little side branches that hold the guitar in. The bottom is flat and there is no need for an extra stand. It fits perfectly! Also an acoustic guitar can sit right on top of the front branches and it leans to the back also. I actually bought this incredible piece from a friend of mine. I had a big project for an aviary to do and I cut the 8 branches that I needed off of the tree with my chainsaw. This is what was left over!

I have one more coat of Helmsman Spar Urethane to put on it.

It measures 34-1/2" in height (measured from floor to the highest point) and it is 33" wide in the front. It weighs 22 lbs. I hand sanded this whole piece. I put a lot of time into it! I hope it was worth it like I think it will be!

Any comments are welcome.

I have this for sale @ https://etsy.com/shop/kodyzone

I like that piece of trunk and how you treated it, it would be nice to see how the guitar sits on it and how that narrow base holds it without tipping … great work !!!
