Intro: Quick and Easy Ukulele Stand

This is a simple 3 piece stand to pop your Uke’ on while you pour another beer or sign another adoring fans chest, Its made from 2 identical pieces of 3 or 4 mm MDF hinged with gaffer/duct tape and a 3rd piece that acts a brace and holds them at the the right angle to hold your treasured uke' safely. The “ears” at the top stop it tilting off the side.
The bottom of the 2 main  sections is 17 cm and the odd angle of the bottom cut out is due to the compound angle caused when the two sections are opened. it is 20 degrees to the base
I sprayed the whole thing with some left over black paint for the final effect.
If you put 2 pieces of board together for the cutting out they will match exactly.
This was made for a roprano but it could be upscaled for any other Uke'

    Very clever! I do wish you had posted the dimensions too, but I have a baritone & I would have to puzzle it out myself anyway.
    Thank you!

    Great stand.

    Would you mind providing a template of the shape?

    Many thanks
