My daughter started learning the Guitar. One of the excuses she kept coming up with for not practicing was having to get the instrument out and put it away again. Apparently, this is quite a common excuse but I wasn't having any truck with that notion. My solution was to make a stand for the guitar and so remove the excuse completely. I knocked this up over the course of an afternoon out of the bits of an old Oak chair. I just made up the design as I went along. I'd never worked with hardwood before - it's so much nicer than construction lumber.
