Easy-to-Build Wood Folding Guitar Rack

A few years back I designed an all-wood guitar rack and set it to a 3-D graphics program.  I just recently found the files and thought I'd post them here.  This rack can be made in 2-3 hours... less if you have a shop set up.  You can add carpet if you like for padding.  The hinge it folds on is a simple nut and bolt on each end.  It folds pretty flat for traveling or storage.  Enjoy!Here's the rack in gray wood, fully assembled.  I didn't calculate dimensions as that will depend on the number…See More

"I crafted both movie honey Dripper guitars.  The prop master explained that if somehow the guitar got damaged or disappeared they could not hold up production for 2 weeks while I made another one.  He sent one back to me after filming…"

Missing Children -- The Alienation Process

Posted on October 13, 2015 at 8:30am 0 Comments

This is totally off-subject of handmade instruments.   However, it has much to do with how our skills are handed down and how our children are educated.

We are all aware of today's situation.  We get up in the morning, rush through breakfast (if we eat at all), the dad pecks his wife on the cheek, says bye to the children (if they're awake yet... he may have to get up early to commute to work).  Mother rushes off to work, leaving children in the hands of the sitter, who rushes…

I have a brother with a 2000 sq foot shop, and another brother who works for the smithsonian. He has a forge in his back yard and he makes his own hand tools. His shop is located in a 150 year old pole barn......its big. When he is not working he hangs out with the Hill Billy's and they make guitars. Sadly he does not think cigar box guitars are much more than a toy. I am working really hard to show him they are real instruments. For about 3 years I worked with him in his shop as the draft person. I am a girl with a woodshop. My shop is only 12x16, but it is organized and I can do a ton of stuff in it. Sometimes I have to roll my equipment outside to work on a project.

Hey Wayfinder I used my horizontal boaring machine to drill the perfect hole in my guitar for the golf club. Fits like a glove and light as air. That was a great idea. That is what I miss is your outside the box thinkin. Happy to see you.

Wayfinder, it was like my dog died when you left CBN. I very much missed your insight and comments. I found out you were here. I joined for that reason and this also offers more opportunities to builders to enjoy like minded folks.
