The guitar stand neck is made of tiger maple and decorative inlay, with a cradle and base of waterfall bubinga. Ebony accents make up the headstock cap, tuners and neck holder as well as the caps for the end of the cradle and legs. The curvature of the neck is derived from the side contour of my Alvarez (Yari) 12 string guitar.

Is there a plan on this amazing looking stand that can be downloaded??
Beautiful stand! I was wondering if you could send me the plan give me any tips for building this? Thank you so much and I love your work!
Dear Kevin Vanden Akker
I would like to buy from you 2 stands, will you be willing to produce and sell me?
My son and I are classical guitar players and we would be honoured to use your work of art. I am an Expatriate living and working in Shanghai, I will pay for delivery costs.
kevin, Congratulations, excellent design. I really like your choice of woods and the combination of those woods in the stand.Would you be willing to share the plans/dimensions or additional photos? I would enjoy making a similiar stand for my son.
I am looking for a nice guitar stand for my husband who is a casual player. Yours looks beautiful. I don't know much about guitars, but it is not electric. It is a Sierra. Would this stand work and can you tell me the cost and particulars please? Thank you.
Could you please Contact me.. Shortstuff.email@example.com
I was wondering if i could possibly have the plan for this beautiful guitar stand.
Beautiful work! and what an imagination!
That is a beautiful stand. I'd be super proud to set my own Kazuo Yari model DY61, Alvarez six on it. Very nice job.
This should have been first place. The jewelry box and tool box are nice, but this guitar stand required serious creativity as well as woodworking skills. Very well done.
It's awesome when you can take a utilitarian piece of stage equipment and make it a work of art. It's hard to stop looking at because the curves invite your gaze. The only problem is the guitar sitting on it might be a little intimidated.
Lovely, graceful design with a tasteful hint of the whimsical. Masterfully executed! Nice work sir.
Outstanding! I absolutely love it when someone takes a completely new approach to something - especially when it's as creative as this. At one point, I wanted to build guitars. Looking at this, I'd be proud to build stands this nice.
Absolutely fantastic work! Right now I can only dream about making something like that :). The curves are perfect.
I'll take three please, one for each Yairi I play, two classical and one 12 converted to an eight
I do not post comments often, but I believe this stand deserves a standing ovation. I love the design and the choice of timber, I wish you just had more pictures for us to view. Two thumbs up.
I just like the design. I almost wish the curved back was just a whim, like the tuning head or a musical line. It has a grace that would hold an ordinary flat blacked guitar equally elegantly. Nice job.
Very nice stand. From the photo it seems there's a small foot off the back - is that right? Looks like more ebony, too. Very nice.
FYI, it's "Yairi", not "Yari" - easily confused because most Americans mis-pronounce it. Kazuo Yairi started designing fine guitars for Alvarez at least back in the early 70's because I owned one in Nashville, TN in 1972 and played it on many sessions around 18th Ave. South then.
