    I put my jr high school wood shop skills to use and made myself a couple of speaker stands to get my JBL bookshelf speakers off the floor. Total cost was about $50 for the wood (just a 10x6 pine board and pre-turned legs from the local home improvement store). Just cut the board to length, sanded, stained and screwed the legs on.

    Very nice! Your diy stands look far more elegant than what I did. I went to Ikea and bought a pair of €10 ea pine stools. Still haven't applied a finish to them.

    Cheers,

    That seems like a perfectly valid solution as well and likely more economical.
