i had shown a mysterious preview of the design before hand, but not the end result… until now!
second attempt, two layers of 1/4 inch foggy white acrylic with double sided tape to hold them together; perfect. gave the supports two slot options that change the angle of their splay, depending on user pref / thickness of instrument used. there now exists three working stands: that one now holds my bass, number two lives upstairs at Noels house, and three holds my guitar.
sidenote: you can see some of my bodoni project in action!
