    Needs another round of paint to fix the bloobers I made on my first DIY HT project. Spikes probably are needed as well, and some rubber sheets to go under the speaker. PVC pipes are filled with sand so it's a very stable construction unlike many premade stands.

    Next most likely is a equipment rack for my 2 channel system, or stands for Dahlquist DQ10's. Then maybe, a DIY sub. The only problem is finding enough time for all this... [​IMG]

    Very nice, I can't really tell, but how did you connect the pvc pipe to the wood stands? There are no outside screws or anything so I was wondering.
    Thanks, keep up the good work.

    Matt answered your question already. I used silicon to seal the pipes to the wood before putting sand in. Then some glue before screwing the woods together, just to be on the safe side. A lot of the work was done by my dad who is a pro, well mostly building houses but this type of work isn't strange to him either. Design was all mine and the next project will be all me...
