A fairly quick, and easy headphone stand design that can be scaled to any size. It actually costs less than 3 dollars - the baton costs about 2 singapore dollars and the MDF base costs about 2 dollars for 6.
These are the basic tools and materials i used, though i seem to have forgotten to have the fairly standard file i used included in here. Shown
1x baton of wood - i used a 25x25x450mm baton with a trench cut in it - it looks nice, and its slightly easier to work with as you will see later.
screws - at least 1.5 as long as the wood depthwise - since we'll be screwing together the wood. I used 3.5mm x 40 mm screws
pin vise or similar with a 3.0mm (or slightly smaller than the screws) bit for pilot holes.
1x 10mm x 10mm x 6mm MDF or other wood for the base.
Essential - A saw, preferably a good one but you can make do with a slightly crappy one
some way to accurately remove a fairly large amount of wood - I use a gourge
A file or rasp to smoothen things while working on them
optional but heavily recommended - countersink bit (i didn't use one, i used the gauge, and the chisle bladed hobby knife to do a messy poor man's countersink
Mitre Box - I didn't use one for my original. they do make a lot more possibilities available
