    Default A new ukulele stand

    Full disclosure, I have one of these on order. I went for the Maui fishhook design made from solid curly maple (custom request), and should be done in a week or so.

    I can’t remember the Internet rabbit hole I went down to find their site for my original order, but they now have a Kickstarter campaign going: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...strument-stand

    Figured I’d share here for anyone else interested! I’ll post my thoughts on mine once it arrives.

    That's a clever, handsome design. The originators deserve to do well.

    Those qualify as furniture or art (or both). Hopefully they are great as uke stands.

    I hope (with our help) they will reach their goal $40,000 by August, then production can start and we will all benefit.
    Wonderful design from the mind and heart.

    Wow, nice! Wish I had room in my tiny house for something that beautiful for holding a uke.

    There's no such thing as too many ukes.

    Sweet. .....
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    When I checked they only had one taker and, sorry to say, at those prices, they may have trouble getting more. I stand corrected, they have 4 at that contribution.

    Yeah, I’m not sure there. I ordered mine from their website before the Kickstarter launch. They definitely had options for less than that before...

    I will say my solid wood request on the Maui hook was somewhere around $360, I think? Will have to go back and look. It is definitely more art/decor than pure utilitarian, and I know you could buy several quality ukes at that price.

    Still, I don’t know why more reward levels don’t exist...

    This price would be a stumbling block for me, they look very nice, but $360 for a ukulele stand?
    Happy just to be a Newbie +, Penny
