In yesterday’s article I posted a video on how to build a ukulele holder or ukulele rack. After a little more searching. I also found a video on how to build a simple, yet effective ukulele stand. This tutorial shows you how to make an ukulele stand out of basic pvc connections. It’s a simple and effective design.
If you are learning ukulele then you want to have your ukulele available to play anytime. It is hard to do that if it is stored in the bag or in the closet. A stand allows you to keep the ukulele out where you can play it anytime you want.
The one thing I will say about this tutorial is that the price will depend on your location. You may be able to find all of these parts for under $10 or they may costs you much more, in case it might be cheaper to use different materials or just go and buy an ukulele stand.

I have had my new ukulele for about a month now, and to be honest, I haven’t really played it that much. It’s not that I don’t want to play, it’s just that I keep it in the bag. When it’s in the bag, I am not really thinking about playing it as often as I would like.
The new ukulele I got my wife however, is always sitting around and I play it all the time. So here is a tip from ukulele for beginners. If you want to play your ukulele as much as possible, keep it in a location that is easy to get to and a place where you can see it all the time. The more it’s in front of your eyes, the more you will pick it up.
The problem, is that my ukulele came with a bag and not a stand. It’s a nice bag, but it is still a bag. Great for travelling (I carried my ukulele from the US to Japan), but not so great for keeping it where I can play it.
So here is a better option. How about making a rack that will hang your ukulele(s) and will barely cost any money at all. It’s really simple and only takes a few supplies. You might even be able to come up with something very similar and more creative.
