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...

Intro: Headphone Stand

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.


Hole saw cutter

Sanding wheel

Jig saw



Varnish and Stain


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.
