Although I've never tried a 'Stewart Stand', I did make a pillow out of a wedge of stiff styrofoam swimming noodle and then covered it with black duct tape or gaff tape. I found this 'swimming noodle' at K-Mart for about $4 or $5 which is about 4' long. I cut off a 5" piece and then cut a wedge or pie-shape out of this piece to accept the bottom bow of the euphonium. Then I covered it with black Gaff tape (black duct tape is cheaper I think). This works good for me. It provides about 2 1/2" to 3" lift above my thigh.
