Introduction: Speaker Stands

I needed some robust yet unobtrusive speaker stands. Couldn't find any to buy, so I made a pair instead.

Step 1: Concrete Block

Two ordinary concrete blocks from your local store. The blocks has internal threads, complement with fitting bolts. I painted the blocks white.

Step 2: The Top Plate

The top plate is a piece from a kitchen countertop made of oak. Drill two holes, the smaller one fitting the bolt and the wider one the washer. Theses stands are quite heavy, therefore attach the furniture felt pads underneath.

Step 3: The Result

Easy to make and good looking, according to me. =)

    Please update with where you got the concrete blocks/purpose&model of concrete block. Would be a great instructable with this info.

    I have never seen a concrete block like this, let alone a store that sells them. Perhaps you could include the proper name of the item, their intended purpose and what type of store sells them. Otherwise, nice Instructable.

    Nice stands but I've never seen a local store selling concrete blocks that shape let alone one with threads built in.

    Thanks! It's just a standard concrete foundation block with threads for post anchor, available in several stores near me.

    You don't have to worry about the dog knocking those over :). Did the blocks come with threads?
