Thanks, Charles.

Bryan, very cool setup, sure gives off some nice ideas. 

 

Anyway, this is my second headphone stand and a slight variation from the first. The next few I make will be more intricate and carry some surprises (just as soon as my tools arrive next week I'll be able to get more creative). I'm also flirting with the idea of making a lamp with a headphone stand attached above, similar to what I did with an iphone (last pic).

Bought these little metal hangers at IKEA $10 for 3.

Been out of town for a few weeks.

 

Sunday morning.  Spring has arrived.  Warmer weather and colder beer is on the way...

 

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

Here's a stand I made last week out of some Oak and Mahogany laminated up, its a fair old lump about 2kg you wouldn't want to drop it on your foot! I have another underway out of Purpleheart & Oak.

Well done Jamie, I like it a lot. If you don't mind my saying your pictures are...well, they aren't all that, haha, but the headphone is classy. Looking forward to the next smily_headphones1.gif I'll have a few more of my own up by then too.

Cheers Eric, I took at look at your your etz shop earlier, some nice concepts you have going, I like the continuity across your work, how's the shop working out for you?

Jamie, 

 

I started taking it seriously about a month ago and the old adage "you reap what you sow" really applies to Etsy. I have garnered a lot of attention once I started putting the work in, but most of my work still comes from custom jobs. Etsy is very much a work in progress. The only gripes I have is that my best work, my forte so to speak, is in larger items: chairs, desks, tables, ceiling lamps, audio stands and the shipping on these items is prohibitive, so I don't even list them. I've had to learn how to create the smaller things, and using tools like dremels and modular routers, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. Is woodworking a hobby of yours Jamie?

Eric, I work as a boat builder, I have mostly worked with composites over the last 20 years. A few months ago I put together a Bottlehead Crack and wanted a custom enclosure for it, this rekindled my interest in the cabinetry side. I have enjoyed making a couple of enclosures for it now and a couple of headphone stands.  I have always been the build it guy rather than the design it guy. I have a few ideas I am working on which combine carbon fibre and wood to make functional art, chairs tables etc for the future etc so find your work interesting and appreciate your creativity. However putting food on the table and paying the bills has to come first. But slowly getting there and a change in direction is refreshingly tempting.

Dutch, 

 

Thanks for the interest :)

 

 I don't know if I'll be attending the NYC meet, but I'll def know in a few days. As for my Etsy page, it's mostly work unrelated to audio, just some of my furniture builds. As for the headfi related projects, I've built a couple of audio racks, which can be found earlier in this thread and a couple others that I'll post in a couple of days. In the next couple of weeks I'll be building headphone stands exclusively. I have 3 designs planned out. Anyway here is a link to my Etsy shop. I hope you like it. :

Wow Jamie, a boat builder huh? Very cool. Must be quite the feeling building a boat and seeing that she's yar or quick to the helm (hope I'm not mistaking the lingo). Both your Crack and stand came out fantastic and you obviously have a knack for it. I've been thinking about making enclosures myself and I've worked with carbon fiber (car exterior stuff, also covered a laptop). It looks phenomenal with wood and a material I particularly enjoy working with. I understand the "putting food on the table" dilemma very well and that is why my Etsy shop and my computer business (build custom pc's) are very much side gigs and couldn't come close to feeding my family. Still though it is as you say refreshing and is far more enjoyable to my "real job". Would be nice to turn it into a living, but it would be a very meager one, for a while at least. If you ever need anyone to bounce ideas off of or touch up some of the pics on your work do not hesitate Jamie. Always lend a helping hand to a fellow craftsman. 

 

Cheers :beerchug:
