Default Homemade stand

I built this from some commercially available components; custom sized hard rock maple countertops, and hard rock maple turning blanks (the stock used in lathes to turn stairway spindles etc).

Two rabbet cuts per leg, a bunch of permanent wood glue, some cargo straps to cinch it all together while it dried, some felt wood floor protectors on the bottoms of the legs and voila.

After I designed this, I sent off the drawing off to a couple places for quotes and was well northward of $6k. Shipping alone was gonna be a few hundred bucks.

The countertops are from an Amish firm in OH, and the turning blanks are from Amazon. All told, my cost was around $1,500. When I originally drew this up, I was using Krell Evo 600s for amps, that’s why the opening of the bottom shelf is so large. If I had it to do over again, the middle shelf would be a bit lower. But I ain’t doing it over, and all the components in the rack are gonna stay where they are...

Last photo is of the custom sized countertops I also had made to serve as amp stands for the M300s.

The stand is absolutely level, and rock solid.

Slainte,

Mitch

Very nicely done.
Maple must be in the air. Just got my homemade maple rack put together using 1" all-thread rod. Think the middle & top shelves need to be dropped another couple of inches. Using granite granite pieces as shelf material so the rack weighs about 350# before installing the equipment. Certainly beats the metal rack it replaced. Only a bit more straightening and "rearranging debris" to get rid of and should be good for another 20yr.

Awesome setup, maple sounds pretty sweet. Just like this outlet...

Don't know whether to get a sap bucket or a stack of pancakes.
