Take a Stand

Guitar Stand in Blue Mahoe (A Jamaican hard wood from the Hibiscus family)

It seems to me that even a humble musical instrument stand deserves to be made to the highest design standards. I made this folding guitar stand from Blue Mahoe – a lovely hard wood from the hibiscus family beloved of bowl carvers in Jamaica. Based on two book matched raked ‘L’ shaped pieces joined by a piano hinge. Vertical and horizontal armatures were joined together by through dovetails and the whole finished with Danish Oil. The piece was designed for a more traditional acoustic guitar, but it fits my Ovation beautifully.

Make the little things well and the bigger designs will shine.
