I'm planning on my first HT purchase in a couple months. I am most likely going to get Axiom M22Ti's for mains, and then M3Tis for rears and the center. Rather than buy stands, I thought that I might try making them with my carpenter friend. However, I don't know what characteristics matter in a stand. What are good woods for stands? And special shapes better than others? Or is it all more just aethetics? All I have seen so far is that heavy, sturdy stands are good. Anything else? Any insight would be appreciated.
