THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 197

post #2941 of 3003

Some hastily taken shots before I got on a plane this morning, but it's done! Pretty pleased with how it turned out. I have some ideas for little improvements/additions I might make in the future. Definitely could do it faster and better if I tried again. It's made out of bubinga and curly maple and finished with Arm-R-Seal (satin). Clamp is from amazon, $6. Not a beautiful clamp, but it works. Might have been better if painted a different color. Regardless, I'm happy with it. Way better than the Sennheiser HH10 (and cheaper, to boot!)

Don't know what this is yet , made of lace and wires I wanted to hang em from a hook , but they ended up like a see saw , weighing scale ! Any ideas on how to improve these would be appreciated

The problem I see regarding your design is that you have to always hang two headphones to keep some sort of balance. Unbalanced won't look as clean or nice.

You're right , the thing is I really want to make my own stand but I don't know how to go about it. I don't do any carpentry work and am looking to find new ideas.

Sometimes I see things around as headphones' stands: old lamps, decoration, to give a few examples. You'll find something in no time.

This isn't exactly DIY but my Lezyne track pump has other uses...

Planning on using some light grey stain on the maple and then an oil finish. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

That's a nice design.  The raised rims serve as locks / stoppers for the headband.

A good one @zorrofox, never thought using track pumps as a headphone stand. 

 

I'm building one with an old HDD. Similar to this one:

Does anyone have a recommendation for a headphone "farm?"  I have about 12-15 headphones that I regularly use, and I have been looking for a way to wall mount them.  Attractive coat hook bars are one option... about four to six per unit, but they leave the headphones out to become dusty and wires to tangle.

 

A set of pigeonholes, like old-time desks had, but bigger, mounted on the wall might be ideal.  I am looking for plexiglass (clear looks less bulky and displays the headphones better), and it seems that 8" x 8" with 4" depth seems about right. 

 

Can't find any... current hope is to find a place that sells pre-cut plexiglass in 4" x 8" rectangles and build my own, gluing with acetone.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

 

(sort of like this, but no need for doors and not a full cube in depth, but half that)...

This thread is amazing, thanks for all the inspiration. After purchasing my HD 600s I wanted them to have a dedicate place to store them. They don't deserve it to be thrown on the table like I did before with my Superlux HD 681. Here is the result:

 

The materials I used are oak and copper pipes. It took quite some time get all those shapes because I underestimated the hardness of the oak. Nevertheless it was totally worth the effort. I really enjoy the fact that my cans now have an unique tray. Hope you also like it too.
