    I got laid off from work last week so with some time on my hands & some scrap steel laying around I decided to make a painting frame similar to the one Stewart McDonalds sells, which I think is a cool design. I haven't used it yet but attatched a mini strat body for the pics. I might try & make a few & see if I can sell some for less than StewMac sells theirs for since i'm unemployed for the time being.

    I made it to fit in an old Black & Decker Workmate which makes it the perfect height for me & I can just remove it after spraying & hang the body up to dry.

    Nice work.

    I'd probably be in on one as well.

    I'm definitely interested as well, cool idea! Stewmac is too expensive, open up the competition!

    Doesn't anyone own a saw?

    You can knock a similar one out in wood in an hour with a circular saw, sandpaper, a drill, wood scraps and loose hardware.

    Great idea

    If you only paint one or two guitars. I seem to have three to six in work all the time.
