Cello rack plans for Eagle Project

My son is pursuing an Eagle Project that will benefit the strings program at his school. He would like to build both a cello rack (that would hold 5-6 cellos) and a violin/viola rack (that is 2 levels and holds 16 instruments). He is researching the construction of these racks and while has had not problem finding the racks for sale he hasn't been as successful at locating plans for their construction. His plan is to stain and seal the racks and add the necessary padding for the cello rack.

Does anyone have suggestions as to where he might find plans for this project?

Thank you.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

If it's for a school can I assume they want to side load the instruments so they lean sideways rather than beck against the neck? That would give more storage capacity in a smaller space.

Those who say it cannot be done should stay out of the way of the people doing it.

Thank you so much for the replies. I found a couple of pictures (Google search) of the racks my son would like to build. I hope this help clarify what we are looking for. We truly appreciate any help.

you have a choice..

reverse engineer it from the photo and using measurements from the cello themselves OR call the company and see if they would provide a PDF file or drawing for your situation... probably not, but worth a try.

That looks pretty easy to build, especially if you make all four sides the same height and width - two lefts and two rights.

Make the widest part of the side slightly less than 24 inches wide and the length less than 48 inches. That way you can cut four pieces from a single sheet of plywood.
