I need to build stands for my MB1 monitors and am throwing around some ideas. I was told to get good quality sand fillable stands because they were worth it. I don't really like the round metal pole look and am wondering if there will be any issues with building the column with wood and filling it with sand. I saw these in Sound & Vision and thought they looked nice. I would like to build some like these(below) but with wood where the Black is and glue oak or another exotic wood to the sides. I would make the wood column hollow for sand. Would this be OK to do or should I forget the whole sand idea and just use a solid wood column?
