I decided to replace my old speakerstands ( picture 6 ).
For a better look and to get my speakers up higher.
It’s a simple construction with 3.9 inch screws and titebond.
When attatching the bottom and base to the centerbeam, i placed the centerbeam in a vise to have good control.
Then layed the pre-drilled bottom and base on top of the beam positioning the piece, and drilled one side.
then i applied titebond on the beam, and drove one screw in. Once one side was tightened i drilled and screwed the other side, since it hard to get 2 perfect drilled holes while trying to position the bottom (or base).
This was a fun and quik project, and i’m happy with the improvement.
Finished with a coat of Tung oil.
Made from oak.
Thanks for looking!

I really do like the design Thomas and as for method of construction, considering no one is likely to sit on them, the simple method you used is all that is needed.

Thanks everyone :) Beech seems really nice aswell Dutchy.
Harry i agree, i chose to screw the top also because the speaker sits on there anyway.
Scott that’s great your going to use this, thanks!

Hi Thomas,

Sorry to comment on this late but I have just come across your stands and they look great!

I take it you used planed timber? Could you use sawn timber for a more rustic look at a cheaper cost or would the finish just look rubbish?

Thanks for your help.
