This is a headphone rack I built out of solid copper and quartered oak to accompany a Bottlehead Crack I made, steampunk style. I gave all copper a blue patina and converted some closed headphones into high impedance semi-open headphones as well.

Best looking crack i have ever seen. That is a piece of art.

You are most kind, I made one with carbon fiber for my son, and I am in the middle of a third and fourth build but only one qualifies as a true Crack. This has little to do with headphone stands, sorry for going off topic. IMG_2210.JPG IMG_2243.JPG

I've admired this thread for years and it's finally time to compile my headphone stands as I just made two more. So here are some pictures of my DIY stands and how I have them displayed.

I guess I'll start with my mod of the headphone stand by @Suraki I made this a couple years ago to keep the wires of my el-8 from touching the base & threw in a laser-etched nameplate. It has LED edge-lighting:

My second stand was made out of a paper towel holder I bent at the top:

The third stand I made was created out of the base of a broken desk lamp, some aluminum tube, copper pipe and the leftover LED's from the first stand:

And that leaves my latest stand, which I made two of for about $20 total with parts from IKEA and some aluminum tube. I really like the simplicity of these:

And all of them in my new IKEA display cabinet ($60)

Hey! Great stands (and headphones btw!). Your "paper towel" stand looks so much better than mine's! Did you spray any finish on it?

been using the old Creative Cambridge Soundworks satellite as a stand since the Grado's headband fits nicely. :beyersmile:

IMG_2547.JPG IMG_2544.JPG IMG_2545.JPG IMG_2546.JPG This is a rack I made to match a steampunk crack amp, I just incorporated an edison light bulb and hand crafted a wire protective cage. Eventually I will add a patina to it to match other copper work. it is a little tough to photograph when lit.
