    Pine used to be shelves.
    Built three. With different cutouts.
    Kept this one. Because I’m German.

    Very cool! I was gifted an inexpensive (for a cello) 4/4 size. It came with what appears to be a guitar stand, and it makes me a bit nervous to use it.

    I like the looks and protection your design gives the cello much better! (I may have to borrow this idea )

    Cool idea. I have been playing at cello, more like hacking, for decades. I have a gig bag for mine but I like your idea better.

    Thanks guys. It was a fun project. The foam padding and felt to cover it was a more significant cost than I assumed. But selling the other two made it somewhat profitable. Not including my wife’s time. Turns out I can’t “felt” things.

    That is really cool. I’ve never owned a cello but I love the sound of a properly played cello.

    I like the sound of a cello, too.
    And I like how op found a way to "make room for cello. . . "
    ;)
