This is a multiple guitar stand that i recently built. It holds 2 acoustic guitars, a ukulele, and up to 5 electric guitars at the same time. It is made completely out of wood, and foam pipe insulation. I (at the moment) only have 2 acoustic guitars, 3 electrics, and a uke. One of my electric guitars it not shown here.

You will need two 20 inch 2x4s.
You will need one 40 inch 2x4.
You will need two 28 inch 2x3s.
You will need one 43 inch 2x2.
You will need one 46 inch 2x2. (not shown)
You will need nine 4 inch pieces of 1 inch thick dowell.

All of the pictures below are just when the wood it stacked the way it is going to eventually be screwed down. None of the pictures are of the wood already screwed together.

Step 3: Sanding it Down

Take the sander and sand down every piece of wood that you have cut. Sand down all of the edges, and any splinters that there are. Remember, just as an early reminder for the next step, pre drill a hole in every piece of wood that you will be putting a screw through. This is so that the wood will not split when you screw it down.

Great build and great Instructable! Thanks very much. Built one of my own last night, modified a couple of inches here and there, but otherwise used yours for the majority of the planning.
I'm working on a version that has a top rail that has adjustable (and lockable!) pegs that can slide in either direction to maximize space as your guitar collection changes.

This is very cool! It looks like you could modify it for other instruments.
freeza36 (author)  Higgs Boson2 years ago
yeah you could. Bass guitars would fit anyway, and the uke spot was actually a complete accident
