Does anyone know where I might purchase a stand like the one pictured in this ebay auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220715023195&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

This looks really nice and I would like to purchase two of them.

I would contact the eBay seller (you could use the "ask seller a question" link) and ask him/her where he/she bought it.

I agree--that stand is entirely out of the question.

MDS725 I did contact the seller--he got the stand from an ex-girlfriend. He said that others have contacted him in the past wanting to know where to buy these stands. Any entrepreneurs out there want to build some stands? Doesn't look like it would require lot of materials.

Maybe you need to find that ex-girlfriend.... :)

In the meantime, I believe that the stand is actually a violin stand. I found these by performing a google search.

Well now, looks like those people in Maine are spending way too much time indoors. Lost a little perspective. I found a uke wall hanger a couple of months ago in the shape of a surf board for $7. It looked really great. Knew I should have bought a couple.

I do believe you have found the exact stand. And at MUCH more reasonable prices!

The idea of a "violin stand" Google search instead of "ukulele stand" Google search occurred to me because when I was looking for a portable (folding) ukulele stand for myself, I ended up buying this stand (http://www.elderly.com/accessories/items/ST20.htm), which can be used for both ukuleles and violins.

Can you imagine. Not a single bid!! I just don't understand people sometimes ;)

The violin stands look pretty good. You didn't say what size uke but I would guess the violin stands will only work for a soprano or concert.

I use these. About $20 and has a latch to hold the uke on at the neck

Here's a DIY ukulele stand (http://www.instructables.com/id/KNEX-Ukelele-Floor-Stand/) that might tickle you.
