    I have a small system on my desk at work, and I'd like to get a riser shelf over the receiver for the rest of the gear to sit on (instead of sitting directly on top of the receiver). Anyone have any suggestions? The only ones I've been able to find so far are too short or way too wide. Receiver is a Marantz 2250B

    Thanks!

    Build one. Then you do it to your exact needs/size/space.

    Thanks, I'll check that out. Not really "handy" so building something practical & attractive isn't likely :)

    If you can drive screws you can do this. You just need a big enough board to straddle the receiver and allow for the mounting plates.

    Get a small wooden table that fits and cut down the legs. Stick some plastic buttons on the bottom cuts or drill holes and insert leveling feet.

    I did this with a coffee table on top of a larger table once.

    That definitely looks doable & looks good. I’ll keep an eye out for some large cutting boards!

    I bought some 4" Capita legs for bath vanity mod. The bushings that fit in the stainless tubes may need to be epoxied in. Mine were loose. I would say quality is ok. But that said they look good and work.
