My previous attempt at making a stereo stand was an engineering and structural fail. I want to reuse the oak shelves from an enclosed stand my late father built for me 20+ years ago. My amplifier is too large for the oak shelves so I had to use a piece of 3/4” softwood plywood. I used Minwax Jacobean stain to help with the industrial look. The legs are 1/2” zinc rods. The shelves are supported with plate washers, lock washers and nuts on top and bottom. Yes, it is a long way to spin nuts down! I double nutted the top of the rods.
I wanted something sturdy, but forgot to measure the components before drilling holes for the rods. They all fit; some just fit more snugly. I need the open sides for the tube gear. I have yet to decide if I want to try to hide the power cords and A/V cables.
