It's very sturdy, and holds the headphones very nicely. Can hold up to two full sized headphones eaisly, or three small size headphones. The wings are curved to keep the headphones from slipping off the ends.

I'm donating two of my prototypes to the Boston/NE head-fi meet. I'm very happy with this design, so I'm teaching my dad how to make these for him to sell.
You continuosly keep outdoing yourself, how do you do it,

Cant wait to see you next design.

Here is my shameless plug. I know this wont get a nod from those who have more expandable budget.. Well hey, I am cheap, and this gets job done. Plus I dont have much room left for a stand that could hold 3 headphones (possibly more in the future)



I was worried the thing might start falling with the unevenness of the painted wall and all, but seems to be holding up quite well so far.

Very cool Drew. The "Pagoda Stand" could be the first in your Architectural series. How about something in the Frank Lloyd Wirght "Prairie" style.

If it works, it works.

I'm running out of desk space with a 24" by 16" rack, a printer, monitors, keyboard, paperwork, so I'm probably going to make a painted pegboard stand. As of right now, I'm using a lamp with a vintage spy camera shunted under it for better balance to hold my 650s and DT770s.

Little off topic but how do you like that Aurilium?

Lovely work in here by the way, I should try something one of these days.

it certainly cant hold a candle to my modded emu. Between this and optoplay 1.0v, I like the former for the (relative) fullness and lushness and the latter for refinedness. Overall, I think it is a bit too muddy to be considered for a main rig, but it reallly is much better than what I have on my laptop internally (and stuck with atm, unfortunately). The mute button on the front end is real handy

A subtle note, I should note, is such that I used to prefer Ei Elite's driving the PPX3 with my EMUs, while with the aurilium I have switched back to RCA cleartops as evidenced in my sig.

That is one nice stand! Actually, it could be sold just as adornment without the function-added value, it looks that nice.

Oh, thank you very much rsaavedra, that makes my day to hear you say that!

Thanks choomanchoo! I can't wait to see my new design either (I have a few I'm kicking around in my head)!

Thank you shellylh!

fatcat28037, I actually plan on making other headphone stand designs that are based on geographic locations, with a theme specific to that location.

I've made a Japanese style (the red/black one pictured here). I think my next goal is to do a Chinese inspired design, and after that I'm thinking of a Tropical style headphone stand that will be really ornate (I just have to learn more woodworking techniques for this one).

I'm starting school again now, so it's a good chance nothing much will come of my ideas for another year or so.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments!
