Fantastic job I really like your design very well thought out.I might try and build one this summer your project is a great inspiration you shoul be proud of yourself.Just one question did you use a router to finish the edges of the shelves?

I do have a router but did not use it for this stand.


The curved corners were first cut with the sabre saw, then sanded to a smooth curve with the belt sander.  Sanding a smooth curve with a hand held belt sander takes some practice and a small radius is easier than a large radius.  You feel for imperfections by running your fingers along the radius of the curve.  You can feel imperfections that you cannot see.


I take the "sharpness" off the shelf edge by "rolling" the orbital sander over the shelf edge when I am sanding the shelf surface.

I am guessing that you have woodworking experience.  If so then I definately encourage you to build your own.  Please post your work if you do.

David,

What a fun thread this is. A real pleasure watching the progress and the finished product is absolutely stunning.

You have mine and many others respect, admiration and most of all thanks for including us in your project. Can't wait to see it filled with components.

Joe

I have started putting some components on the stand & will post more photos when it is "filled" up & wires connected.

Here is a start.

I have read reviews of commercially produced stands having holes for cable management too high above the shelves.  Cables through these holes were visible above short components.  I remembered those complaints and put the holes for cable management down close to shelf level.

Really first rate work.  Very nice!

My issue with cable management on commercial stands was that the shelves were not deep enough.  The only way to fit larger components (Like my N80ES)  on and still use the cable holes was to kink and contort the cables in impossible angles, which I wasn't going to do.  So I just took those pieces out of the stand so that the back was open.

Thanks to everyone for the comments and feedback.  I will post some more pictures when the stand is filled with components & wiring connected.

Mark-shelf depth was an issue when I was hunting for a stand.  Few current stands can accomodate deeper components, many of those stands can only accomodate deeper components on the bottom shelf.

The stand is not against the same wall as the speakers these components will use.  I just completed in wall wiring for speaker wires.  This wiring goes down through the crawl space.

The length that went down through the crawlspace is 6 meters.  This is 10 gauge solid wire, which is very stiff wire to use.  I separated both wire pairs into 4 individual wires for the length in the crawl space.  The 4 separate wires are tacked to the underside of the floor joists, occupying a path that is about 8" wide.

The stand is fully filled now.

I am thinking about replacing the DVP-NS999ES in the upper right with a MDS-JA20ES.  There are also more upgrades to do for the interconnects, I will post a photo of the back wiring when it is more complete.

Long term plans (probably a couple years from now) are replacing the jukebox CD players with a laptop computer as a music server.  I want to try making wood side panels for the EP9ES in the near future.

David_S- What a great job you did on this equipment stand! It is now apparent that with this unique stand design in mind why you were not satisfied with any of the commercial offerings. Having the Panamax M5400-PM for the Power Management all of your fine Sony Audio equipment with their new Hubbell AC plugs is also a commensurate upgrade for the performance of your gear.

I am upgrading more of the analog audio interconnect cables in the 2-channel stand to Furutech Alpha-OFC FA-13S cable.

I have previously upgraded the analog audio interconnect cables from the TA-E77ES to the TA-N77ES and from the DVP-S9000ES to the TA-E77ES to Furutech FA-13S.  Now I will be upgrading the cables from the CDP-X303ES & from the SDP-EP9ES to Furutech FA-13S.
