Hi Uncle John   Here are the pictures of the stand. I wanted to make a stand that would be rustic looking.  I went to the woods nearby and was walking around looking for something that would work for the stand.  I wanted to use a three leg system but I wanted the wood to be kind of crooked and bent not straight.  I found a couple saplings about 3/4 inch in diameter and cut them and grouped them together until they would all meet at the top.  I took them back into my workshop and started to put it together.  I wanted all the pieces at the top where they come together to have one hole where all three of the sticks came through.    Now all these I had to fit   all three pieces together in the one hole and file them so that they would be at the right angle to the bottom plate.  It took a while but finally got it.  The pictures show the results.  Thanks, Rich

Many thanks, Uncle John - very pleased to receive your kind comments. The fingerboard is a bit of an unknown. I bought it as a softwood that seemed to be fairly heavy and solid, and I used it in the first version of the CBG about fourteen years ago. Since then it hasn't shown any signs of bending, so I've been lucky. The surface finish was produced by several coats of satin varnish.

We should definitely get together before you scoot off buddy.For some reason my tablet won't let me message you so I had to post.
