A copper stand for my new HFI-780's and a future can.
Needs to be buffed up when the warmer weather arrives and coat it with a clear lacquer.

Thanks nick n much appreciated!
I was going to do a PVC stand at first, but there was very little in the selection of "unique" fittings...
Wood and I don't get along, so that was out. ;)
Upon looking at the copper fittings my choice was made.
6' 1/2 pipe, (4) 90's, (2) Street 90's, (4) 45's, (6) Tee's, (4) Caps and 6' 1/2 Insulation was $30 from Kent Building Supplies.
Lacquer, Steel Wool (Medium & Superfine) and PC7 Epoxy $25 from Home Hardware.
I did not want to solder the pipe as I know it would not have turned out well, the "Just for Copper" epoxy was way too expensive. I've used PC7 Epoxy in the past as well as JB Weld and they both work excellent.
I had the design in my head so I measured and cut all the pieces, dry fit them, made some adjustments, mixed up a pile of PC7 and started to assemble.
(You only have a hour of pliable time with the PC7)
A pipe crimp tool would have been a excellent choice for press fitting, I never thought of it at the time though. I will seriously consider that option if I build another one.
I'll post updated pictures once it's buffed and shiny. :)
I designed and printed this cubicle hanger for my K701s. You can download the CAD files from Thingiverse
I saw this design on Thingiverse, but it's too big to fit on a Thingomatic build platform. We just got the new Makerbot Replicator yesterday, so I may try it. (Much larger build platform)
What is the spacing between the screw heads? I'm not sure if it will fit my cube walls.

I see I'm the only person sporting the K'nex headphone stand. I borrowed my room-mate's lamp and desk for this one. He's out, so he won't mind, and he owns Bose QC2 headphones, so he'll never come here.
Yes, that is a D2 in an altoids tin. I put up some wallpaper in there, too.
Here is one without the headphones on it:
A side view with 'phones
Lastly: a sideview in it's natural habitat.
Also featured in the last picture are two mugs in need of washing, three railroad spikes, a cellphone on a charger, a large ballbearing being warmed by a laptop (for later use as a handwarmer), a computer, monitor, some topaz, a folder used as a mousepad, my D2, a pair of truly crummy computer speaker, a router, and last weeks' sudoku. I enjoy a messy desk.
My last hanger was a really large c-shaped knex one. This is v2.1
