    Though y’all might get a kick out of this.

    Made by me and my FIL. Two tiers that can be separated. Leather bound rests. Cheers!

    Nice work! A two tier makes a lot of sense.

    I’m distracted by the guitars. But when I look past them I see a great idea that was executed well.

    Absolutely Brilliant Idea!!! I've been trying to come up with a way to get more of my guitars out of their cases and this is perfect! It is simple enough that I can make one myself, without a wood shop. Great, thanks!

    Good thought, but I think they'd encounter a challenge from the folks at DRS:

    Really nice job by the OP and his father in law.

    Very nice indeed and they're always at the ready. Well done and nice collection.
    Phew, for a minute there I thought FIL meant former in- law.
