My inspiration for this week was literally staring me in my face. I walked into my friends apartment and found 6 guitars lying around – 3 of them near the kitchen. So it was time to learn how to make a guitar stand.
I found this one DIY I liked a lot and decided to try it out for my need. I wanted it hold 3 guitars and I wanted to carry it in a subway.
* 20ft of 2x3 (whitewood stud) * 6ft of Rubber pipe insulation * Screws, jigs * Awesome shop staff
I started with making the bottom first. Most of it was done just using the pocket screw jig and making the 90 degree angles.
Once, I started working on the back, it was all about the clamping. C clamps, 90 degree clams, shop staff clamps.
Once the frame was done, I needed two pieces with 45 degree cuts to create a crossbar to the frame. So once I got that cut, it was clamping time again.
After checking that a guitar would actually sit on it, I cut out the curves for the neck using the scroll saw and hand held scroll saw.
And after some staining near the slop sink and rubber insulation – it’s time to take it home!
