Here's mine. Didn't take me too long to build. Not much for eye-candy, but it gets the job done.

Lovely work... Someone should do a guide on making wood stands. I suppose it can't be that hard - just cut, sand and probably glue.

Yep. You can do it all with non-powered hand tools if you want. I did mine with a jigsaw and a hand rasp. I did run a router on the base edge which left burn marks that I could not sand out for the life of me without totally reshaping the base. I should have done the base's edge with the hand rasp like I did on the upper part.

Information like this is gold. I'd love a step-by-step tutorial. Some of the designs posted here have lovely finishes.

It was really easy to make and looks decent. Costs about 5$ to make (in wood/PVC pipe). Im amazed by how much better it makes my headphones look over a 3$ plastic banana stand.

If anyone wants to make one - take 1 1/2" ID PVC pipe, cut it at a 45 and trim the edges down to the height/length you want. File any rough spots and then glue with some plastic glue (ie model glue), clamp, let sit overnight. Spray paint the next day.

The base is some scrap wood cut down, sanded and varnished. It has a wood block screwed to it that holds the PVC pipe snugly.

The 'crown' I found at Ben Franklin (a craft store).

I used a plastic letter opener to make my headphone "stand." I wrapped the handle in high quality leather. I then drilled two holes in it and used two screws to attach it to the bottom of my desk...

Yeah, that's it, it's almost sensual. And the craftsmanship is phenominal.
