2. Instrument stands
Stands are useful for keeping your instruments safely to hand, without having to lay them down on the floor. Use them for practice sessions or during a performance. The pegs can be removed from the bases of the stands for ease of transport. While the stands are used mainly for recorders, they may also be built to accommodate other instruments (e.g. schawms, oboes, flutes, cornets etc).
Stands can be constructed for any instrument combination. Examples shown here are sopranino to alto in elm (right) and sopranino to tenor in sycamore (left). Images of typical timbers.
