Speaker Stands

When we were visiting over the holidays I decided to finally bring some of my home theater equipment back from my mom’s house. In the theater I had set up in the basement at my moms, I had my front speakers setting on some concrete blocks wrapped in fabric. Since this is now in our living room, I decided to go slightly more upscale and built some speaker stands out of pine that matched our decor a little better.

I built the stands out of 1x6 pine better grade lumber and finished it with a one stage stain & polyurethane. I designed the stands to have shelves that were sized to hold DVDs upright, but could be used for displaying decorations as well.

I built the stands out of 1x6 pine "better" grade lumber and finished it with a one stage stain & polyurethane (2 coats). I designed the stands to have shelves that were sized to hold DVDs upright, but could be used for displaying decorations as well. I tried to match the style & finish to the wood on our TV stand, but as you can see the stain color wasn't quite right.... oh well, close enough.

Heres a picture of them all set up. Keri and I even put the DVDs in alphabetical order while we were waiting for Mythbusters to record enough so we could skip over the commercials.
