Studio monitor stands for a friend
Back in 2005-2006 my friend Panagiotis was building his own sound studio for professional use. I was asked to design and build a pair of studio monitor stands that would be used to place his studio monitors but also to store items such as books and CDs. The stands should allow the monitors to rotate 360 degrees so that the stands would be precicely oriented to their ideal angle in relation to the listener.
The stands were design within a day, MDF was decided as their material since it would be easy to shape, assembe and paint it.
When the side panels, shelves and back were cut, the edges were sanded to smooth them out and dowels were placed so that the shelves would be later glued.
For glueing I used all my clamps that were so few I had to glue 2-3 shelves at a time being very careful to keep all the wright angles. Clamps are not very good when it comes to gluing these components. By the way: back then the studio had no machinery to cut the components. We depended on local workshops to cut the components to shape.
However in retrospect, it would be far better to assemble everything dry to check precision and then finish all components being carefull that I masked the places where the components would be glued.
The two stands were ready for some sanding followed by the primer…
