I needed a stand that would put my center speaker as high as possible but without going above the bottom of the window trim, which of course meant a custom solution. I already had inexpensive stands for the other 2 front speakers but wanted this one to match the black grain pattern on the speakers. What’s the solution? INK. It’s a perfect black stain that’s ridiculously easy to use. I failed with Minwax ebony and some chemical concoction recipe that used rusty nails (!) but I should have just done this to begin with. Topped with a coat of poly it came as close as I’ll ever get to the target finish.
It’s held together with 4 recessed screws on each side and has rubber feet to help it stay put. The overall design is close to the existing stands but with nicer wood.
