  14. No strings attached My version.

    First off, I'd like to thank Dan, Eklund for the great Guitar pattern in the Holiday issue of SSW&C magazine about a year ago. This was so fun yet so hard for me to cut.

  19. Guitar stand

    My brother's birthday was a while ago and I thought I will make something instead of buying. He enjoys playing the guitar and one thing I've noticed is that when he puts the guitar down it tends to fall over, especially when his 2 small ones are running around. So I've looked at a few designs...
