Excellent Painting Stand!

FINALLY - I built myself something to make painting much easier! Inspired by some old videos of Wayne Charvel I had - I created this. His was all metal - I don't weld - so I improvised.

Less than $50 to build.
2x4's, 1/2" Ply, some pipe (1" & 3/8"), 3/4" Conduit, and a lazy suzan swivel.

Keep an eye out for some of my work soon! Thinking I will do a batch or two of some LNG, DY, and SK's!

Re: Excellent Painting Stand!

It's actually perfectly balanced. You can see the guitar is very close to the center of the stand. Doesn't lean or tilt at all.

Here is a video link.

Unbalanced?
Did you skip school?
Guitar is right in the middle so it's perfectly balanced.
The problem I see is he started a thread about a home made stand which he thinks is something special but it isn't.
But clearly it's perfectly balanced.

Re: Excellent Painting Stand!

Thanks for the defense on the balancing part, but the other part was a bit rude...I don't think it is anything special at all - however in all my searches I have never found one like this. All the ones I have found involve being mounted to a desktop, or hanging. I see a lot of posts about things here that are not "something special" - but I don't express that.

So I was simply showing a visual for others that may have been looking for something similar.

Re: Excellent Painting Stand!

Great stand, last time I painted a guitar I made a hook out of a dry cleaning coat hanger.



Not too sure about the vertical video......

I was thinking the same thing but there looks to be a nut or something in front of the pipe bend.

Good idea, much easier to get the sides and bottom.

Re: Excellent Painting Stand!

Yes, there is a lazy susan adaptor between the two horizontal squares to turn that area, and then you can hold the 3/4" conduit to spin the guitar as well. You can see a video of it here...

Sorry for the vertical shot...click my profile for my website and you can see some other pics of my shop and such in my blog.
