Unfortunately, I've almost exhausted my supply of Jatoba and last time I checked, I could not get any more--unless I was willing to pay an ungodly amount of money for it...

Absolutely phenomenal! Among the best I've ever seen and that includes my own.

Most hard woods do finish beautifully, but that one looks like it finishes especially nicely.  I looked into getting some myself...$10 a foot minimum...that is damn expensive.  Anyway congrats on your creation.  I really like the design.  It looks like the diameter of the wood is about perfect to the curve of the headphones.  Do you know what the diameter of the curve is?  I was thinking about doing something similar with redwood.  Love the look, feel and smell of it even though it is getting harder and harder to come by these days.

REPURPOSE FIRST GENERATION APPLETV INTO A HEADPHONE STAND

 

http://www.lifewithtech.net/blog/category/diy-repurpose-1st-gen-appletv

 

I don't know about you guys, but I have a few first generation AppleTv's lying around. I've used one in the past to make a shelf above my desk. Mainly to keep things like a mouse and SD cards off my desk. Today I decided to repurpose yet another one into a headphone stand.  I've done a DIY headphone stand in the past and was not crazy about the final verdict of the base I made so I will be reusing the Ikea parts of that and this AppleTv as the base.

Neat set up Byran, I like it a lot.

As others, I use a glass head as the living room stand. Does anyone know if this will 'widen' the hp to an extent that it will ruin them over time?

Just found a new use for the new lamp.

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

 

post #2819 of 3072

I got two 6 inch sections of weathered, removed teak handrail and I bought some miniature wrought iron shelf brackets.

 

Listening station view, I face a sliding glass door.

I've had some free time this weekend and took a little time out for headphone stands. A couple of new designs and improving a couple of my older ones. 

 

1) Waiting for a few meters of LED rope-lights to come in so I can finish this stand. As you can see the plexiglass has been fitted, so only the lighting is left: 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Paying homage to the headphone with a headphone shaped headphone stand (may end up changing the cable wrap a bit): 

 

 

3) Just added a cable wrap to the simplest of my designs: 

 

 

4) My 2nd headphone stand, but now with more precise tools the cuts are better and more accurate:
