Finally getting going on the music room.

I tried to get one of those old heavy carved church pews like one of our members (bayou bengal) has but could not find one locally for a decent price.

I think I may have room for a few more.

Glad to see that with a few exceptions the Gibsons have a morally correct, secure  safe space. While the Martins are hanging on a shoe tree.

Lol. Yeah, "keep them over there . . . " he said, whilst genuflecting (referencing BBG's comment)

Starting hanging stuff.

Wife came down to take a look. She asked if the room will hold all of them. I told her no problem, in fact I have room for a few more. She said she doesn't think so 🙂

Those guitar trees are very sturdy but I think it looks cluttered. I'm planning on getting a couple more pews and converting them and getting rid of the trees and give the Martins a more proper home 😉

Hey I was wondering about the long guitar stand that holds many guitars, or some may call it the pew stand.. Anyway my question is do they hurt the guitar over a long period of time when leaning the way they do?   I am asking because I have thought about buying one, I love the idea of having many out of cases at one time...by the way love your room there and some great guitars as well..thanks for showing us.

I have some concerns also. If I designed it correctly an L00 thru a Super 400 should cradle without hitting the tail pin. I covered the bottom planks and top rack with 1/4" thick felt. I'm planning on keeping a close eye on the bottoms and add some cushioning if needed. The tree stands and wall hangers are all covered with cloth or felt.

The pew I used had a good back but the seat was plywood. The back was cut into 3 planks and the center support was lowered. The upper end of the back had a nice rounded edge so it was used for the top piece.  

I changed a couple things on the fly.

Nice conversion project, I like the simpler lines of that pew and the cross on the ends.

And the prayer wear on the rounded edge ends. CAD drawings to

So you have no worries of the necks of the guitars  at that angle?  I love the design and concept but before I do something like it I want to be sure there will be no issues...thanks for showing the drawing..interesting.  Where did you find the pew?

you should make it so you can rotate the direction the guitars are sitting, and do that once a year - while you have a celebration around it, where you name guitar of the year, and drink a little something something
