Happy New Year to everyone!
Recently my husband and I have built a wood shop and I have been enjoying working on the lathe. I made myself a trumpet stand out of several different types of hardwood. The two pieces (base and holder) are affixed and will not come apart so it certainly wouldn't be the best stand to carry to rehearsals or gigs but more a stand for a practice area at home. Because it is constructed of hardwood it is also quite heavy making it a more sturdy alternative to other widely available stands. When I was turning it, I fit it specifically to my Bach 72 bell so it would likely be possible to customize for specific instruments.

Thanks for reading and looking I would appreciate any input regarding whether or not people would be interested in purchasing such an item and how much would be a fair price.
