There is an ongoing effort to not bring things into our home or our lives that aren't necessary. While still acknowledging the usefulness of certain objects, Adam and Emily decided to design and build this guitar stand out of objects found around the yard and in the workshop. It's something we've really been needing, and have been unable to find used. This solution showed Emily yet another way to do things for herself and lighten her impact as a consumer at the same time.
The cost was $0. The value for Emily to learn these lessons and have a little more practice with the power drill, well that goes without saying, priceless.
