Hello again! :)

First of all sorry if this isn't the best place on the forum for this post... I thought it kind of fit under ideas...?? we had plenty floating around while making this. ;)

Hope everyone is well.

Here is a few pics of a multiple-instrument stand that my siblings and I made yesterday, we had lots of fun doing it and are very happy with the end result.

This is the hook for the head phones. Yes, it's a fork (why not??)

And some more forks, we bent these for the Uke and Mando holder's, we might invest in putting some heat shrink tubing on them so they don't damage the instruments.

The only problem is that when I get myself a Uke there won't be enough space, and of course my violin isn't there, it stays in my room where it is a bit safer. :)

Byeeeeee

I think I am most impressed by being able to shove a fork inside a piece of wood!

 

Nice piece of craftsmanship there.

 

When it comes time to add room for more, just add some hooks on the back side of the stand staggered from the front ones - room for at least 3 more.

That is utterly brilliant, Kiara!

Thanks everyone! :)

Most of the credit should go to my sister though, she was the mastermind behind most of this. You can check out her youtube channel if you like http://www.youtube.com/channel.....Ga_8RxGCag she's a clever one. ;)

Thanks again...
