Introduction: Headphone Stand

About: I enjoy repurposing and restoring old furniture and making woodwork projects that are not seen every day. I make most of my projects using wood that is either, recycled,reclaimed and love to repurpose and re...

After destroying yet another expensive gaming headset, by rolling over the wires with the computer chair, I thought it was time to make a stand for the new ones.

Step 1: Materials Needed

I found a template that I liked and printed it out in Microsoft office. I traced the outline onto my wood. I used scrap wood I had from an old project. I cut 2 pieces so that my stand would be chunky.

Wood

Hole saw cutter

Sanding wheel

Jig saw

Sander

Glue

Varnish and Stain

Router

Step 2: Cutting Out Your Shape

My wood was quite thick and I am not very accurate cutting out with a jigsaw, so I cut them about 2mm wider than the template. I glued the two pieces together and used my belt and disc sander to sand the two pieces to look like one, using the outline as a sanding guide.

Step 3: Cutting Out the Hole

I marked out the center and added a hole to make it look better using a hole saw. I only drilled half way then turned my project over and completed the hole from the other side to prevent blowing out and damaging my project.

Step 4: Sanding the Hole

I cleaned up the inside using a sanding wheel until the inside was smooth.

Step 5: Router the Edges

And used a router to remove all the edges to give it a nicer look. And finally I sanded my project smooth and stain with dark Mahogany stain and gave it 3 coats of gloss varnish. Time for total project was 3 hours excluding drying times.
