    I need to tuck 2 or 3 guitars into my little music corner against the wall so that they have a chance of survival in a house with two young grandchildren, 1 cat and 2 1/2 dogs. I have a space about 20” wide. The guitars will only be there when I’m playing.

    One of the designs I pulled off the net. I’m combining a couple ideas just using the photos as a guide. What must be pointed out at this point is the fact that I’m not a woodworker, I just tinker and have fun.

    Everything clamped together for a test fit....ok so far.

    Practice cut on a scrap piece to check the top slot for the guitar necks.

    Looking good. You work with wood to make something, hence you are a woodworker.

    I used very small finishing tacks in the corners.

    I love working at my work bench and being able to see some of my old albums I have had for over 30 years. The records themselves are near death having been played soooooooo many times back in the day. And....Picking up the needle and putting it back down over and over again in the same spot to learn a song or lick.

    You look like a woodworker to me. Guess what I'll be building this weekend (or next). Any dimensions you could share?

    I haven’t finalized the set back yet, I will finish the base, finish the vertical supports with attached top then clamp the uprights to the base and move them forward or back until I find the correct amount of lean for the guitars.

    I took basic dimensions from the following link then adjusted them to the width I wanted, 20”, and to account for a slanted vertical I liked

    You guys are nice; but, come on.....When I say I’m not a wood worker that is not false modesty. You need to go no further than this forum to find individuals that truly are woodworkers. Some of the guitar creations posted here are truly stunning and are the result of real woodworking skill.

    Me, simple useful projects in wood or metal is about my speed. I like what I build and most of the time they come out pretty good and most importantly they function. One example I like, my two work benches and shelf unit I enjoy tinkering at is something I built.

    That's a sweet looking Eastman (shhh, don't tell anyone - I find their necks much more comfortable than any Gretsch I ever tried...)
