Guitar Neck Roller Support

I saw photo's of these in the Stewart Mac catalog and thought I'd make a pair.  They are made from 2x4's that were planed square and glued together.  The larger has a 5 inch radius for acoustics and the smaller a 3 3/4 radius for electrics and smaller bodied instruments.  A spindle sander made the recesses from the squared block and a band saw cut the profiles.  There is cork in the recesses for padding.

They seem stable and should make nice rests for routine maintenance like string changing.
