Introduction

Many of us invest heavily in costly furniture for our houses. But when it comes to speaker stands, we’re not big fans of spending money on them. Well, do you know how to make a DIY speaker stand at home? Mmhm… Tell? Are you thinking why I am asking this?

A speaker stand is much more than a piece of furniture. It is something that can help your speaker’s sound quality. Not only this, but it also keeps your speakers above floor level and away from anything that could damage them. If you own speakers, you must have a speaker stand in your home.

We are not recommending you purchase a speaker stand. In fact, we’re going to tell you about a DIY speaker stand that you can make yourself. So read this post to find out how to do it.

Supplies

If you’re willing to make a speaker stand at your home, then you’ll need all these materials:

Tools

  • Drill
  • Caulk gun
  • Saw (Circular one)

Materials

  • 10 feet of 4″ PVC
  • 10 feet of 3/8″ All-thread
  • 4’x4′ piece of 3/4″ plywood
  • Nuts and washers
  • Sand
  • Caulk
  • Spray paint

Steps To Make A Speaker Stand

For making your own speaker stand, you’ll have to follow these steps thoroughly:

Step 1: The base and speaker platform must be cut out of plywood. Use a circular saw and cut the wood to the sizes you require.

Step 2: Cut the PVC pipe now. The height of your speaker stand will be determined by this PVC pipe.

Step 3: Cut the all-thread. The simplest way to determine the length of the all-thread is to insert it into the pipes and leave 3/4″ hanging out on either side. Then just outline it with a pencil and cut it with a saw.

Step 4: The base platforms must be drilled and countersunk. Mark the middle of your base and platforms on one end. Drill about midway through the bases and platforms on one side with a drill. This is the countersink that will allow your nut and washer to lay flat with the boards’ surface.
