Nice! I do love me a Copper stand.
Solder or Epoxy? You also might want to put a couple of pieces of foam pipe insulation where the headbands go so you don't get that coppery smell and residue on you headbands. Just a suggestion. biggrin.gif

Takes two days to get the smell off your hands after building one... I wouldn't like to roam around with that smell on top of my head... biggrin.gif

Never thought of that, its a very good idea. never noticed the copper smell thou. i just epoxy it together to avoid the solder residue

With some time and a vision you could make a steampunk stand, not sure why this style is not more popular :D

Good steampunk is an art form, not just gears and hot glue like all the bad ones out there... biggrin.gif

Thanks. Still looking for a better hinge to attach the brace to.
 

 


December, hopefully.  My wife needs some long overdue attention after my 6 weekends with this dock and stand.

Nice! I think you'll find it better for the headbands, and if it gets ratty, another $1.79 makes it all brand new again. I use it on both my stands.

Aww... I preferred seeing all that copper.

I use the same foam for my headstand, but mine is nothing special to look at.

 

I wonder if there's a reasonably aesthetic way of using as little foam as possible to reveal more of that lovely copper?

post #2265 of 3454
I was going to initially make a padded leather section for the headband, but my leather skills are not up to par so I used the foam instead.
My stands have quite a few coats of spray lacquer on them so they won't tarnish as well. The foam could be cut down to just the width of the band easily if one chooses.

So in the end you would buff the shine up in the copper which is the most work, quite a few coats of spray lacquer, better if you can get an autobody shop to bake on some clearcoat. Then cut the foam down to just the width of the band or a nice padded leather section. Would be the ultimate in copper stands IMHO.
