I recently re arranged my home rehearsal room and one feature that I had (wall mount for my tablet using a tom bracket) became obsolete. I have another bracket installed that holds a lcd, so i figured i would re-purpose it. Since I need a couple of headphone stands, and been so close to halloween... i could no resist to do a Skull Headphone Stand/Wall mount.
I bought a cheap Halloween prop skull at Lider (our version of wal****t) and added a "spider nut" using some hot glue, then using an old cymbal stand part (like a simple memory lock) attached it to a goose neck and then to the wall mounted clamp.
So... Here we go.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
For the materials you need
- A Prop, big enuff to hold your headphones. (in this case, plastic skull)
- Means to hold the prop (in this case, tom bracket for the wall mount, microphone gooseneck for the arm and metal clamp to attach to the prom.)
- Mounting options on the prop it self ( in this case, T or "spider")
- Something to drill
I will depend on your prop, in my case it was soft enuff for me to be able to "drill" using some scissors
- Something to glue
Hot glue worked for me.
Step 2: Get the Prop
Choose what you want to use. I went for the classic and cheap halloween skull prop
Step 3: Drill It
In this case, the plastic was quite soft so i used a blade to "drill" the hole
Step 4: Attach the Mount
secure a nut using hot glue or other glue. i will mount the prop on to a microphone stand gooseneck
Step 5: Put It Together
Put your pieces together making sure you have the proper length / alignment.
Step 6: Mount It to the Wall.
I´m re purposing a previously installed Tom bracket for this. This makes for easy removal.
Step 7: Enjoy
Now just rest your headphones on it. In this case, I can use the jaw to hold the cable.
Not bad for a 5 minutes build.
