This is in a Swedish store but I belive that this is a common construction of a worklamp so you might find it in a tools store or something like that.

 

And yes, some miner modifications will have to be done, for example removing the knob and screws and the glue it in place.

How about a shiny new headphone box for your wife?  Some of them, like HiFiMAN and Beats, are Quite Impressive!

I'm looking for suggestions for a headphone stand that functionally doubles into something else. Last month I built a stand that also works as a pretty awesome led lamp. Now I'm at a loss. Can someone fill in the blank?

Does your computer tower sit on your desk?  You could modify the case.  Not the best idea, but you could make a headphone stand + pen cup holder for your desk.

Hi,

 

I have now turned this : 

 

 

Into this : 

 

 

This is what I did : 

 

 

1. Remove lightholder (drilling) and other details

2. Saw of a bit in the middle

3. Drill new hole for screw in middle

4. Change the design of the metal structure to get a higher and more stable stand

5. Filler for middle to hide most of the rough metall and the screw. The filler also acted as extra holder to get a a fixed structure(the screw was not enouth).

6. Sand it

7. Clean it

8. Spray Painted 5 layers with mat black paint.

9. Mount, feets, softhandle and rubber nubs

 

This is what I could do while living in an apartment, if I hade more tools like welder it would have been a better end product.

Hi Eric nice work, I am envious of your creativity, did I see some of your stands on the MD site recently with some orders:beerchug:?  I have a couple of new stands at a rough prototype stage at the moment which are a departure from my normal wooden ones like below and am waiting for some materials to arrive to start putting them together. I have had something in mind along similar lines of the stand with the draw in the base as well.

 

  

 

 

Keep up the good work mate, I enjoy seeing your creations

 

Regards Jamie

Thanks Jamie. Coming from you it has truer meaning for me as I am likewise a big fan of yours (I would love to someday have one of your beautiful stands!). As for MD, they reached out to me a few weeks back and wanted to know if I could mass produce the Z stand. Seems pretty good so far, despite the devilish outcries from would-be-woodworkers (for whom everything is easy and who evidently can build anything, but only choose not to wink.gif )

Keep em coming Jamie. Can't wait to see the new works finished.

There's been some great stuff lately--impressive, guys! 

 

Eric- love that last one--very different design; reminds me of a giraffe!  My daughter has a set of Denons D600s and they'd look great on that one in her room!

 

Jamie- the finish you put on those is impressive...what do you use?  Gloss poly?  And, I love the wood in that middle one in the second picture.

 

sp3llv3xit-  All I can say is wow...still wondering exactly how you did that...

 

I'll contribute something I made a while back-  this one's a lot simpler than what I usually do...the pix are from a post I put up today (trying to sell the HD650s...)

Thanks I have always liked the look of laminated wood, neat choice of handle for your cable winder.

 

The timber in the middle one is Spalted Beech. For the finish I use a home brew wipe on Tung oil + varnish mix to seal the wood and enhance the natural colour followed by a automotive clear coat to give a little bit of sheen to the finish.
