Developing ideas for a guitar stand

July 6, 2015

 

I was challenged to come up with a guitar stand design - the challenge came from a guitarist!

 

First thoughts went to minimalistic bent and laminated wood because of my previous experience making chairs, but I was unsure of the actual design.  A couple of sketches took my thinking to the creation of a tripod design

 

So here is the very first tripod.  I was puzzling over how to manage the curvature of the legs in two dimensions given that I was steam bending the Ash.  At this stage the front to back curvature is steam bent, the side to side curvature is done by laminating each leg and gluing it into the curve

 

None of this is pretty but it proved that the concept could work, since it did actually support a guitar.  Need to refine the thinking
