Yes - I need to paint it all red, with white trim.  The blue just doesn't look right, does it?

My first foray into copper to match the rails on my Mad Dogs.  It's not perfect, and I learned a lot from my (highly visible) mistakes, but it's functional, fits the designed space around my Schiit stack, and it'll do the trick for now.

That's one of the coolest ones yet.

Thanks!  I don't have the equipment to weld the elbows, so I figured I'd just use plumber's Goop to seal the joints, but I must have done something wrong because it didn't hold fast enough to support the weight of the cans, so I added some Gorilla glue OUTSIDE the joins at the weight-bearings elbows.  I tried to hide it underneath the stand, but even if I can't see it I know I did a sloppy job.  I also didn't account for the fact that the elbows wouldn't give me perfect 90 degree angles, even though my cuts are square (used a tube cutter).  To be honest, I have no idea how you get a 90 degree angle since I used 90 degree elbows and the angles are clearly acute on most corners.  That said, I like it for the time being, especially since it fits perfectly over my stack and matches my newest cans :D

I haven't built anything just yet, but I did make a prototype in Creo for one of my classes. It's very modular and simple because the idea is to change the material to match your headphones. It's hard to tell from this angle, but the arm does have a curved surface near the end, and the glass pillar is hollow to make the center of gravity on the base and make it harder to knock over.

Nice job! I do love me a copper stand. biggrin.gif (I have 2 of them up here.)

I used JB Weld and PC-7 on mine, you have to rough up the ends with coarse sandpaper also the inside of the fittings. Have everything cut and ready to go, mix up your epoxy and start assembly. Support the parts that won't stay up by themselves, or epoxy them on a flat surface first and add them to the uprights after. biggrin.gif

Cool.  What's the base made of?

That's basically what I did with plumber's Goop.  Coarse sand paper (inside and out), made the flat parts first and joined them after, etc.  And it still didn't hold.  Oh well, I probably should have used better glue.  For now, it'll do.  Copper tube is cheap, so I'm sure I'll make another one at some point after some more research.

Mahogany in that render, but it can be pretty much any material you want. Big, blocky, modular design, extremely DIY friendly :)

 

 

 

The toughest part to replace would be the glass pillar due to it being hollow.

 

Of course, all of this is in my mind and haven't been applied in reality.. yet.

That's really cool cytoSin, I like the way it fits over your stack and matches the Mad Dogs.

I found a whopping big screw-in knob in the hardware store by chance and though that it would be perfect for hanging headphones. I have screwed it in under my desk for this very purpose. I'll probably go back and get a few more so I can make use of the space there to create a headphone rack of sorts.
