Make your own floating acoustic guitar mount

As promised, here is how I made a wall mount for my acoustic guitar. It worked out nicely, except that I damaged the paint on our wall a bit while installing it :( I'll need to patch that.

If you prefer to just buy something, Monoprice does carry a cheap horizontal guitar mount, but it's not as pretty: http://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=602131
