My first, and not last, attempt at a Headphone stand. (I do need one for the home and work office).
Step 1: Credit Is Due to the Wood Workshop for the Design
I was looking for a design and found the one posted by "The Wood Workshop" https://www.instructables.com/id/Headphones-Stand/ and used it as my start for the design.
Step 2: Finding the Wood
I did not have a full sized piece of wood that could be molded, and started with the idea of laminating some plywood together. This again became difficult, as I did not have enough "left over" to make a solid piece, and was reluctant to sacrifice a full 4x8 sheet for this project. My first layup would have had a large gap in the middle, as well as another problem,...
Step 3: No Bandsaw
I do not have a band saw, and my jigsaw blade was not going to be long enough to cut through the 4 ply blank.
So starting looking for options.
Step 4: Copper Pipe
I went with one and an half inch lengths of copper pipe that I had in the shop. I cut three sections, and placed 2 on the bottom and one on the top (that actually holds the headband). This gave me the distance to rest the ear cups on the side, as well as a bit different aesthetic than a full block of wood.
Step 5: Final Product
The final product, once stained, turned out functional.
I all ready have a version 2.0 in mind, that will have supports in the front for a tablet or phone.
Thanks to all who have posted headphone stand Instructables, as there is a lot of inspiration and great designs out there!
