Had to look twice at that after you said the materials involved! Really good turnout and looks like top quality. love the HP's too :wink:
The stand really suits the D(2&5)K's. Sexy and sleek

Best part is I can stuff cables in the middle of the tube as well. Less than £5 worth of parts holding 100x it's price in headphones...only on Head-Fi. 

Did you ever polish your D5000? Mine was purchased use and is a bit rough... some scratches on the gloss TT

I don't dare. I'll end up rubbing off the Denon logo.

I revisited my old stand from forever ago. Stained the base a red oak and smoothed the paint on the PVC a bit.

Repurposed some bamboo composite wood to make a stand, but didn't realize it wouldn't stain very well :/ Still much nicer than anything else I have.

Found some inspiration from this thread. Used some left over PVC and filled the bottom with some left over aquarium rocks to add stability since I will be adding more headphones to the stand. To be honest with the height of these guys they could double as a great toilet paper dispenser! Haha

Nice Job!

Initially I was going to do PVC as well but the selection of pieces available I didn't like, so I chose copper.

Before, it was too easy to tip over (only when you gave it a slight push or the headphone's sitting near the edge). I made an upgrade to my Headphone stand. It probably needs some painting, but it'll stay this way until I get some left-over paint from somebody.  Perhaps I should cut it in half horizontally too, since the wood block is a bit too thick...or not.
Here's DIY stand version 2.0.

Ikea utensil rack + copper pipe insulation foam.
I don't see much point in uploading my 2 glass heads for my K241 and K240 (which my wife and I use for TV), as there are plenty of those in this thread already... unless someone really wants to see it.
