Thanks! Haha good idea! I originally wanted to coat it in some sort of rubberised material, but had some trouble sourcing anything :( It's up on instructables, and anyone is free to make their own, and remix it however they want :)

Very cool, what class was this for if you don't mind me asking?  Looks like a lot of fun.  

 

I just finished machining the stand I posted cad sreenshots of a few months ago.  Just need to thread a few more pieces and it will be complete.

This was for one of my Industrial Design studio classes at Monash University, the brief was to design and make a personalised product from components taken from a printer, and indeed was lots of fun! 

Oh, I do love machined parts, I'll check it out!
EDIT: Looks awesome dude, can't wait to see the end-result! I'm assuming that you're using metal rods, and threading the ends to slot into each other?

Yep most of it is aluminum stock and the smaller stuff is cold rolled steel.  Big thing on top is  an 1/8th inch acrylic sheet.

 

Industrial Design! That's what I want to get into in college, I'm a junior in HS in an engineering program and I would much rather move into industrial design than mechanical engineering.  Do you consider industrial and product design to be the same thing? Some say it is but I think PD is much more art oriented.

Ahhh very nice, nice mix of premium materials!

Hmm, I'm not too sure how they structure it over in America. But here in Australia, Industrial Design is product design, and specifically with my course you can specialise in car design, general product design and furniture design. So yes, with my understanding I consider product and industrial design to be the same thing. Also, over here, you can do a double degree of engineering and industrial design, you may want to look into that to see if they offer that at the universities near you (if you also enjoy doing engineering). 
Hope this answered your question :)
EDIT: it seems I'm not entirely correct, after some googling, it looks as if their is a difference, but it's not very clear cut as their is an overlap between the two. All I do know is that Industrial Design focusses on mass-produced products and has some engineering subjects within the course. Maybe contact the universities directly, and check them out during open weeks so you can see for yourself what the aims are of the course.

any advice on how to make it look nicer?

 

I have very limited tools, only have a saw and screwdrivers, sandpaper. Anything I can use to maybe make it look more aesthetically pleasing?

I know it may sound cheap/ tacky but there is this textured paper that makes it look like leather.  I would consider gluing it around some of the wood parts.   That might look good with the metal. Other parts you could stain.

Was thinking of staining it thanks :D will take a look at the textured paper.

Sunday morning.  Time for the "Tap Handle of the Week" headphone stand.

 

post #1931 of 3072

I like that! I don't know why I was thinking you should use bar tape for bicycle handle bars. I think it comes in leather.

i managed to finish my ikea headphone stand. i was waiting for the base. i have a spare led tape that i was thinking to attach at the back, in the hollow part but attaching it to a power source makes it not a "cost-friendly" option. it might have to wait until i get the muse. nothing fancy as you will see
