THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 194

post #2896 of 3432

Had some time today and threw together a stand. Simple, but not too simple is what I was aiming for.

Pegs or screws with wood caps? I like it! Stylish and simple, with character!

Here's another one I made today. Can be used for one headphone or two. Going back to the more simplistic variety for now.

 

 

 

Hi Eric, I really like the finish you achieved on the wood, looks rustic and charming. I'm tossing some ideas around and got a basic design for a desk-clamping headphone "stand". After seeing your creations, which are all very beautiful I must say, I was wondering how to achieve this kind of finish. If you don't mind telling me, which kind of wood is this and how do you weather it (if you do)? thanks and keep on creating :)

Best stand I've seen to date! Simplistic lines with functionality.

 

That extra bit to wrap the cable around is brilliant.

On that particular one I use pine and merely sand it down very fine and then apply a stain by Miniwax called "Dark Walnut". I then sometimes coat the completed unit in mineral spirits or polyeurethane depending on the variety of wood. Nothing too spectacular goes into the process. 

 

Here is a variation on a stand that I made much earlier and sold to a member here. I'm just trying to play with curves here to see if they are in any way preferable to the more commonly used rectangular form.

Thanks for heads up! Minwax does seem like a good product for this kind of weathering. I particularly dig the barn wood look so I searched a bit how to achieve it and an ironoxyde and white vinegar solution is supposed to do wonders on pine. I'll probably try that this weekend and build the stand :)

4 can stand. Wooden magazine holder filled with river rocks and a wooden curtain rod with padding.  Super easy.

That's quite the jump in terms of sound quality. Yamaha to hd800. Looks great though!

I found recently an interesting desktop monitor part and I was wondering what can I fix on top to support headphones? Any ideas?

The main I think it's the colour: navy dark blue and I don't imagine wood matching the overall style.
