Multi stand build

Hey, do anyone know of anywhere to get hold of a DIY plan over a Multi Bass Stand?

Ill would like to try and build one in wood, so that it look nice in my practice space (raw pine). And one that could hold 5-6 basses, with some form of padding - thinking thick filt.

No ideas here, but please take a photo when/if you make it.
I’d love to see a nice custom multi-stand.

I built this one a couple years ago. I’m not sure if I used plans or just guessed after looking at one online. I’ll look for the plans though

@Paul_9207 what did you use for padding on the neckholders?

it’s just pipe insulation I got at the hardware store. I think I bought it at the same time I bought the dowels, I just made sure they fit over the dowels snugly while at the store.

If space is not an issue, you can just use swimming noodles. If you are in the US, FiveBelow sells them or 99Cent store sell them too. I like that its not as grabby as the rubber foam style.

the ones I used are essentially a pool noodle, they are not the foam rubber material. Also only $1.98 at Lowes for a 6 foot length.

The bottom stretchers are wrapped in shelf liner.

Well, Im thinking abit here:
Use Aeroflex foam on a stick, or put flit on a board?
So this, thats very soft and thick (13mm):
aeroflex-kks-13-mm-rorisolering
Or this but its only 4mm and not very soft:
ZB01

By soft Ill mean squishy…
Thinking the foam will compress and hold more or less everything, even at “bad” angles. Where filt, will coussin the paintjob but wont give any hold.

What would you like if it was yours?

The qestion, for me, would depend on if either of these substances would react bad with an instrument’s finish. Otherwise, the felt looks like a cool idea.

The felt is the same kind as you find on the strap holder, just thicker.

Hmm, maybe Ill should build two and see wich Ill like the most …
