I don't typically think of mixing my relaxing hobby, headphones, with religious symbols, though I do like the Japanese aesthetics.

Hey,

You should realize there are some Japanese religious symbols that can freely used in such applications.

If you have been to Japanese buddist temples, you should see something like.



Observe the picture. This is called "hennmyou". Supposed to take away darkness; which is evident from him carrying a huge lamp.

Now consider if the lamp was ... a pair of headphones.

Note that ugly thing is a "demon" or "daemon" underling to some holy person. You can kinda play around with it without pissing people off. (Besides, buddists aren't like fundamentalists at all.)

Haha a Japanese demon holding headphones would be a bad A stand. Any master woodcarvers?

One more thing,

The proper direction to which the headphone should be hanging should be below the arch / gate-thingie. ... You ought to ask the "Punks" at Yasukuni-shrine. I would LOVE to see them get a kick out of it. They're probably only people who gets offended. ... (They kinda worship the war criminals ye know? Yah ... ) 

Then again, p1ssing people off never feels so good. Makes me imagine getting kicked in my behind. Yeck!

Now speaking of cool buildings to make into headphone stand, try this one, ...



Sorry for the religious talk thingie. It was not my place to bore people.

Might as well add mine, inspired by various designs on this thread. I have no real woodworking skills so its a little rough but functional.

Finally got the pics in.........
You can add an extension to either side and add 4 more headphones so it doesn't look so crowded. Cost is less than $5 for everything, (pvc, spray paint, bar stand), and you can make it any color you want. It only takes 1 hour till completion, depending on the speed of the spray car evaporation. The diameter of thee tubes supports all the headphones so they will retain their shape and not be bent or twisted. Thanks for looking. By the way, you can cover the tubes of pvc with any material. That is my next project.

Not a headphone "stand", more of a headphone "hang". I find it rather useful.
