    What about Jake de Villier's stand design? Go to his website, click on the workshop link, and scroll down. I made one last week, and I'm pretty happy.

    I have one of the Laabs stands. It was thrown in with a bass I bought last year. Nice from a distance, pretty cheesy up close. Certainly not something I'd pay $130 for.

    I used several stands I found online as inspiration (amongst others Jake de Villier's stand) and made this simple stand:

    Later I made another one for my daughters 1/16th bass and they look very nice side by side!

    After the first version I had to make a new one that was bit higher as I had measured the endpin length wrong... I made it to the same design but higher and with the same "wings" at the bottom. But while fitting the bass inside my home I found out something I had not taken into account... The ceiling was too low to get the bass out! So, as I had this time calculated in bit of extra room at the bottom, I had opportunity to lower the whole stand. But in the process the wings had to go... Kind of a shame as I liked the look with wings better... I recycled the old stand to make the stand out for my daughters bass.

    It is very easy to think up a design as it is in fact just a wooden box...

    Maybe easy to think up but not so easy to actually build. I sure couldn't! You've done a beautiful job. Do you take orders for them? :)
