Purpleheart Headphone Stand I made for my sister’s birthday. Cut it out on a scrollsaw (NEVER cut 2” purpleheart on a scroll saw…) and spent about 3 hours sanding to get out all the mistakes from the saw. Finished with two coats of Minwax Polyurethane with a 220 grit sanding in between.

Good job! I cannot imagine the difficulty—your scroll saw must be a lot better than the one I have. I made my wife a display stand out of purpleheart. It gets no direct sunlight and still is same color after more than 5 years.

Looks good. I may have made a notch where the head-band part of the phones come in contact with the wood. That way they couldn’t slip forward or backward off the stand. Just my 2 cents.
Thanks for posting.

That is a great point woodeye. I didn’t do anything like that so that the stand could be a bit universal in the way the headphones sit on the top. If she gets ones with a wider band (like mine) they actually will cover the entire top. I would have done that if it was customized just for this set of headphones. Thanks for the comment :)
