How to Build a Guitar Stool

These are a music lover's dream come true!
These are a music lover’s dreams come true!

There’s a particular kind of wizardry that comes with seeing things for what they can be, rather than what they are. You can build things that put smiles on people’s faces, and make them think.

This guitar stool is a perfect example. It doubles as a chair and as a decorative element. I imagine this being the focal point of conversation when you have friends over. If you’re a music lover, this one’s definitely for you!

Really fine workmanship, don't you think?

This project requires woodworking skills. You’d have to cut the wood and turn it into something that resembles a guitar. Not very easy, right? But still doable, so cheer up. When it all comes down to it, the result is well worth your time and effort.

You’ll need a few materials but quite a lot of tools. Gather ’em up and start making your very own guitar stools!


  • Your choice of wood
  • Plywood (for the template, optional)
  • Epoxy
  • Screws


  • Bandsaw or Jigsaw
  • Router table
  • 2” straight bit with ball bearing
  • Rounding-over bit with ball bearing or file and sandpaper
  • Hand plane
  • Fret saw
  • Drill
