    I was wondering if there are some basics that i should know about when building speaker stands. Is there any websites out there that i can refer to. Do I build these just like building a flexy rack? Also, what kind of specialty parts do I need?
    Thanx in advance

    I made some 3 legged stands using a flexi like concept. I used black plumbing pipe threaded at the ends (instead of all thread which was overkill) and sheathed them with cheap EMT tubing which was sanded and clear laquered. Bottem plate double thickness MDF, top single both finished with black laquer spray paint. The position of the pillars match the 3 feet on nOrh drums. I will post pics at some point.
