    I'm planning to make some SPS-500 clones and was hoping to get some dimensions from someone who owns a pair of these stands. Specifically the middle plate that can be mounted horizontal or at an angle. If you have a pair, can you please let me know? Also looking for the dimensions of the screw placement on the sides (for the slanted orientation of the middle plate). Here is a picture of the stands I'm referring to. Thanks.

    No veneer, it looks like solid lumber too

    Thanks for the ideas. From what I've found online, the dimensions of the original SPS-500 stands are 370x250x290 mm. I'm trying to stay true to the original dimensions and am looking for specs on the middle board and the location of the screw holes. Thanks.

    I made some today. In Australia i used Vic Ash in 290mm x 45mm
    2 sides are 295mm long
    Centre is 337mm or 427mm minus the thickness of the 2 sides if you have ns1000x

    For ns1000 i think its 395mm minus the thickness of the 2 sides is the centre piece.

    I'll post pic tomorrow once i have finish staining will walnut.
