About us

  Solid Ground Stands is a family-owned and operated business established to create fine, handcrafted musical instruments stands made from premium hardwoods, such as walnut, cherry, and maple. Our first design comfortably fits most acoustic and electric guitars, and we are already working on similar designs for other stringed instruments including banjo, bass guitars (acoustic and electric), mandolins, ukuleles, and fiddles/violins.

Solid Ground Stands are handmade in the USA!

   Mark Tindle / Founder-Designer - Music has always been a part of my family for as long as I can remember. I have played professionally for many years, and now have the joy of seeing some musical talents emerge from my six children. I have also done a fair amount of woodworking in my time including custom furniture and mountain dulcimers. It is really exciting to have developed what I believe to be a viable and marketable product related to both of these interests. It pleases me immensely to be able to combine my love for woodworking with my passion for music by offering these handcrafted instrument stands....I hope you enjoy.  

Solid Ground Stands on Kickstarter

We recently ran a Kickstarter campaign with the goal in mind of raising funds for advertising that is so costly. Although our campaign was not "successful", we did learn a great deal, reached about 50% of our goal, and as a result we were able to begin (although slower than hoped) to get the word out about Solid Ground Stands.  Here is the video we created for the Kickstarter that briefly tells our story. Enjoy!
