Introduction: Simple Elegant Guitar Stand
I designed this guitar stand to be universal and really simple:
- no glue
- no screws
- no nails
- just one piece of wood.
In this case I used a board of oak wood, 25mm thick, about 22 cm wide and about 38 cm long.
You can use the template I made and modify it to change the size. I found that a corner of 9º works best on all acoustic guitars, I haven't tried an electric guitar yet tho.
If you decide to make your own I would love it if you'd send me a picture of it at firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 1: Transfer the Template Onto Your Board
I printed my tempate on an A4 sized piece of paper and punched holes in it on interesting points so I could draw inside those holes on the wood.
Step 2: Drill Two Holes
Then I drilled two holes with a drill having the same diameter as the thickness of the board (in my case 25 mm).
I wanted to keep the holes round and just off center to ensure a snug fit.
I used a fine saw to work inwards from the hole to be able to make the middle cut. This did require some patience however :-)
I first completed the middle cut to keep the structural integrity intact whilst working on the other hole and finally the last two cuts to finish the guitar stand!
Then I tried to fit the pieces together, sanded, tried again, sanded some more and then the stand was finished!
