Picture of KNEX Ukelele Floor Stand
In this instructable i am showing you how to make a Ukelele stand using only 51 KNEX pieces. This can be made in under 30 minutes and works out cheaper than buying a stand online.

Due to its minimal KNEX usage (55 pieces) i have decided to make 2, as i play my Uke in more that one place.

I imagine this will hold other small instruments but i have not tested this.

Step 1: Get your Parts

Picture of Get your Parts
Connectors:

1 Way : 6
Orange Ladder : 2
Yellow 5  way: 6
3D 2x 4 way : 2
3D 2x 7 way : 4
3D 4 way + 7 way : 4

Rods:

Green (16mm) : 10
White (32mm) : 4
Blue (54mm) : 5
Yellow (86mm) : 6
Red (128mm) : 4

+some form of spacer.
+optional padding (detailed in last step)

I used 55 knex pieces + padding

Looks useful - I got a ukelele for christmas and have nowhere to leave it overnight. Never thought of k'nex - good idea :)

I got mine for christmas. Stands are roughly £13 - so i built my own.

If you build it send me a photo with your Uke on it :) - ill add it on here.
