I,myself, do not have homemade speaker stands. I bought my pairs at different times at Radio Shack for $50.00 a pair. But I saw this site that has beautiful stands. I saw your post and thought you could maybe get a few ideas on what kind of stands to make.
HEY THANKS to both of you. I have to make custom stands beause the s=38 lay sideways.You made yours jeff, those are nice.Iam kinda leaning toward PVC pipe thats what some others did.But iam still open to steel ideas.
The stands linked above by David are (I believe) the Wood Tecnologies line of product. I happen to have just gotten 2 sets of those stands for my set-up, and they are very nice. They go together very well, needing only about 10 minutes to assemble each stand. They are very sturdy, and come with carpet spikes for stability.
Just another idea: If you did not want to build stands you could just go to your local Michael's store and buy Plaster Pedestals for a decent price, then texture and paint them what ever color you would like...
I checked the picture again and sort of see what you are talking about. Having sat in front of it for many hours I can say that I have not noticed the sagging though. It may be due to the picture and how it was taken. When I assembled the flexi I used a level to make sure that every shelf was correct.
