Gotye, Looks like I have enough posts now to attach pics.
A poor man's attempt, bought a hose holder and wrapped it in soft foam.
like I said earlier its a fatal urge to share my attempts.
Some awesome headphone stands in this thread, you people continue to impress me!
Very nice Katana stand idea, very original - it would go really well with some Japanese headphones
This carved wooden stand is just to die for, such amazing craftsmanship. Would you accept me as your adopted brother just so I can have a Xmas present like that?
^ great extension idea! How did you do that?
My Uncle sent me over surprise stand he whipped up from spare pieces as he called them. Baltic Birch ply finished with a Watco oil. Left it up to me about the black pipe, I may consider using some birch veneer on it oiled to match the rest, possibly a disc of veneer over the hole also, not sure for now. Either way it's a beast, completely unexpected.
I put some custom orthodynamic cans on it for a size reference ( Audio Technica AT-7xx series headset )
Now to find it a home.
Thanks nick n, I'm happy you liked my idea it happened almost by accident.
I had some left over paper tubes at work so I took a couple home and was thinking which size I was going to use for my headphone stand. Initially I thought of using only one tube at a time, but just so it happens that when I put them together they fitted perfectly inside and hold in place without mocking around. I used it like that for a while, only recently I had time to put a vinyl finish to it.
I was inspired by this thread to build my own stand. I had some scrap black walnut laying around and figured I could use some practice with mortise and tenons. Pretty simple design but it turned out well.
4 coats of tung oil followed by a couple coats of hard wax.
I've been selling off some vintage equipment I've restored in order to buy an amp and headphone combo. Raised ~$2500 so far and am leaning towards a Woo Audio amp, not sure of headphones yet. But that's for another thread. I'm sure there are lots of people here that would love to help me spend my money. ;)
It will fit 3 comfortably. 4 depending how big they are. I have Denon AHD2000 and Sony MDR-V6s that I bought back in the 80's to go with my Walkman Cassette player. (dating myself)
You'd think $2500 would be enough, but when you put an amp, DAC and headphones together it adds up fast!!
