THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 13

post #181 of 3134
That truly is a work of art Afrikane! The detail is also astounding - especially the care taken to ensure that it is held on at its strongest points, alleviating pressures on the weak spots. Very similar (in principle) to the Orpheus stand you created?

In the close-up shot from above, it looks like you used some softer/padded material on which the red frame sits - what material did you use?

I was soo inspired by this thread that I bought some Crotch Bubinga and Honduran Rosewood, macthed bookends of each.

Nothing near the quality here, but here's my first project....ever.


Original idea:
http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f6/stand-idea-242181/
Finally found the time after having the idea about a year ago.
Wish the bottom plant had a better finishing with the edges.
Lessons learned:
I drilled from the bottom, so the top splintered slightly around the hole.
Rushed the gorilla glue job connecting the pipes so some of it foamed out of the joint.
I still think it turned out pretty good though.

Hello everyone, new guy here! You guys have inspired me....here is my feeble attempt at a headphone stand (it WAS fun though!) I used what I had at hand - some scrap wood, plastic conduit, gold "hammer texture" paint and some copper fittings.

^^ i think that actually looks pretty decent, other than the copper bend =P

I was wondering if that wasn't a little "much" I wasn't sure how to terminate the end of the tube and I happened to spy those copper fittings.

I'd honestly say just remove the copper right-angle. The headphone stand is level so friction should be more than enough to keep it from falling off and without the elbow joint it should be easier to slip off when you want to do some listening.

I think the bend looks okay. I guess you could replace it with a cap of some sort, perhaps slightly larger than the tube so it stops the cable slipping off.

Thanks mojo! I forgot to tell everybody that this is the "California" model. It has velcro on the base and the copper "hook" keeps the 'phones from slipping off during mild to severe tremors. LOL!

I guess I have inspiration for my next weekend project.

Well not my art actually but a friend's creation, I find it really simple and practical

Looks great. Not like the common stands.
