Those stands are nice, Richard! Did you buy them or make them?

Hadn't thought about that @DustyTurtle! GREAT point! 

@Stumelia, I only WISH they were my instruments! No such luck! :)

Manda, your dulcimers are gorgeous!

Alas, I have some rather rambunctious cats, so I've always had to avoid instrument stand that depend on the instrument  'leaning' on a floor stand. I usually hang my instruments on the walls, or else keep them cased.

Hey @mandapanda.  That's a really nice stand and I can see why you would like one similar to that. Notice, though, that all the dulcimers on there are by the same luthier (Terry McCafferty), and the stand is made specifically for that design. If you had other dulcimers by other makers, they would not likely fit the stand so snugly.  Personally, I've opted for the "wall stand," as you can see here .

There are a few dulcimer stands out there, including some made by members of FOTMD, so hopefully one of them will chime in here.

Good morning, FOTMD! 

I'm newer to this site and even newer to dulcimer playing. I have one fantastic instrument already and another one coming. How do you folks like to store your instruments? I'm hoping to find a stand like the one in the attached image (although my husband won't be happy if I attempt to fill it too quickly!!!). I would definitely like a stand that is pretty and looks more like nice furniture than just a utility. 

I would love your ideas!! Thanks in advance!!

P.S. I'm not a builder. No plans, please.
