Studio monitor stands

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.

I didn’t mind the marks from the clamps and the glue marks that much since later on I would sand everything down and use primer before painting.

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…

And after they were primed, all that was left was the paint. It was decided to use sprey paint to paint them because back then it was decided that this way it would far easier to reach the inside. There was also some thought about the roller marks that are always left after painting. Having primed and sanded the surfaces it was thought better not to threaten the smoothness… It was the wrong decision just because of the amount of paint that was used.

Here you can see the end result. Tried to find some pictures from the studio where they were placed but back then, not everybody had a digital camera to take pictures and share them on social media. For sure they were calmer times…
