New Trophy

Presentation Chanter Stand

presentation chanter stand, bespoke, maple, rosewood, award, trophy, made in Scotland, engraved brass plate,

This presentation chanter stand was recently commissioned as an award for a piper completing a pipe majors course. The main base was maple, with two hand turned and carved rosewood columns supporting the chanter. A brass plate was engraved and fitted before being presented.

I borrowed a chanter from a friend who plays the bagpipes so I could get the curves right. I also used the borrowed instrument  for the photo.

The completed base was given two coats of Danish oil and finished with a satin lacquer to keep it maintenance free.

See some examples of my other trophies here. They were all made for special presentations for achievement.

The design of a chanter stand can be tweaked to allow for more than one chanter, for example. If you prefer blackwood or ebony instead of rosewood to match your chanter then that could be arranged. I only buy exotic hardwoods in small amounts for specific projects, and always from Cites certified sources. So it is always from a sustainable source.

The base could be carved or engraved directly onto the wood. The base could also be a different wood – oak, ash or elm are other good alternatives. You choose.
