Ah yes, that makes much more sense now. Sorry - got confused :P

Yours reminds me more of a air multiplier, albeit better looking. Good job D2000!

I just use a modded Hose Hook... biggrin.gif

 

Edit: Not nearly as sexy as some of the stands on this thread though...

Some nice looking stands on here (D2000)...

 

Anyway, here's my contribution:

Wenge wood with 4 coats of french finish and final treatment with beeswax for a semi glossy look

 

 

Inspired by Bonthouse's brilliant stand. I really liked the design, just had to make one. 

As a side note, would anyone be interested in a woodwork-fi thread in the gear-fi section. Be nice i think, a showcase of all things timber. biggrin.gif

Cheers Meddle. I love your adaption of Bonthouse's work. I personally prefer your lighter wood finish, it lets the blacks of the gear really be bold :D

thanks man! it was pretty quick, the design, cutting, sanding, and assembly only took about a day, the long part was waiting for the bad weather to go away before I could prime it, paint it, and top coat it. I was thinking of going wood stain before, but the quality of the wood that I have is pretty crap, so not worth showing off. 

 

looking forward to yours!

Now thats just sleek (and well executed by the looks of it). Nice work.

About ten minute job, with a "help" of 3½ and 2 year olds. Those black shelves from Ikea were a bit scratchy, but it's ok. Those shelves are more or less hollow inside, so I'm not expecting long life for this stand anyway. Next one will take less space from table, I got some simple ideas from that thread. This was just something to do on Sunday morning with parts already found from apartment.

What's your amp/source component mounted on the base called? It's beautiful. Where did you get it from and what price :)

Not a bad 10 minute job at all buddy :) Nice use of the metal handles against the black. I bet the HP's are easy to come on and off (a must for me)

As promised here's my latest creation.

 

 

700 700

700 700

Made of Australian Spotted Gum and weighing in at 12.2kgs!

This thing couldn't get any more solid.

There's virtually no movement of the stand when retrieving or depositing the D2K's, which aren't  exactly light.

The metal handles are lathed out of aluminum and I bought the stainless steel cable management knobs.

It also has little rubber feet for grip, though it's unlikely to slide. 

 

I'm yet to decide what to finish the surface with. Definitely not an oil; that'll ruin the headphones. 

Maybe a lacquer and then varnish.

 

Thoughts?

 

On a side note, if anyone wants one made I'm opening up the option of commissions :)
