  1. Nice diy project!
    Just a word of caution though, don’t put older lacquer finish instruments on one of these. The lacquer will react with the foam and melt. Most newer ukes have a polyurethane finish which is less likely to react. Check carefully. If your uke feels like it’s sticking to the stand, you’ll need to cover the foam with something.

  2. my first impression when i saw the completed uke stand…? wall-e.

    looks functional & affordable! more diy stuff for ukes would be cool! mahalo, uu staff!

  3. I like the idea of the stand. Not sure if the foam is open or closed cell. Open cell can eat cheap finishes. Love the idea. just want to make sure people are careful on there choice of foam.
