to those who made their diy speakers stands.. just have a few questions.. so for example i put together 2 mdf boards as top and base... one board is cut for the pvc pipe right... my question is.. right a threaded rod is still needed so how do i lock this? wont the nut on top protrude and affect the speaker placement? any close up pictures? ihave already made a flexi rack.. and didnt have any problems... im just curious how the boards are secured to the rod.. pictures would help..ive seen some of these projects but still confused how it will come out flat on top.. im not worried about the bottom cause im planning to attach spikes anyway ..thanks.. great site btw!!!
