I was checking out this project TNT Stubby. This design looks really good but I think the base is too large for where I want to put it. Could I make the base thinner. Maybe 12 x 6 inches? This would be for my surround speakers, my mains are wallmounted right now but I may build 4 stands. I would do this because it is easier and cheaper to build two extra stands now rather than later. If the gravel guard finish turns out well(see this thread Gravel Guard . I may use it on these stands as well. So has anyone out there built these stands? Do you think it would be ok to make the base smaller?
