Below are some alternative projects we've done. The classical footstool is offered as a regular product although the others are special one-off projects. If you are interested in any of these or something else, send us an email and we will make it happen.
Our Footstool is the perfect complement for the classical guitarist. We will customize the dimensions to your specifications but the footstools shown are 11" long by 4" wide. The height at the rear is 5.25". These dimensions have worked for a number of our customers. It is solidly constructed with mortise and tenon joinery and finished with shellac, penetrating oil, and wax. The cost is $225 including shipping. The footstool is available in any of our woods: walnut, cherry, curly maple, red oak, white oak, wenge, bubinga, and claro walnut. You can specify a contrasting wood for the vertical section if you would like.
These speaker stands were created for a pair of NHT (C2) speakers that have mounts on the back. The stand is similar to our SM Guitar Stand. It uses the same "Mod-Eez" joinery hardware. The speaker is attached with two screws at the top rear. Although the speakers are weighty at about 13 lbs each, they are well supported. The speaker wire runs down the back of the vertical section. Santos mahogany was used for the vertical section and plain maple for the base.
This project was to create a pair of boxes to hold recorders. The boxes were made from claro walnut. Dovetail joints were used throughout and the interior is lined with pigskin suede. The photo showing the lid as seperate was shot before the box was competed, it was ultimately hinged and an ebony pull knob was added.
Quite a bit of scrap wood is generated in the production of guitar stands and music stands. Some of this scrap was put to good use for a wedding cake board for our daughter and son-in-law. The board is about 18" in diameter and contains curly maple, walnut, claro walnut, bubinga, cocobolo, santos rosewood, cherry, santos mahogany, purpleheart, and likely some other woods that I can't recall. It was also engraved with their names and wedding date.
