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 stand@lennartdemeij.com

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.

Step 3:

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 :-)

Step 4:

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!

I went back into the comments and found the author's comment where he said he forgot to add the template. There is a file to download there. Tried to link it to this page, but couldn't. Hope this helps!

Love the design!! But I can't seem to find the template in the download. Reading other people's comments, it seems it is included in some downloads but not others? Can anyone help me know how to access that? Thank you!
