Not being the handiest w/ woodwork - mainly because I don't have the tools - I was looking for an easy solution for some basic DIY speaker stands. Wandering around an arts & crafts store, these struck me as "doable".
Basic unfinished pine (or basewood for a little more $$) plaques & CD crates. Picked up 2- 9x6, 2- 11x9 and 2 crates 6x6x15 for roughly $18. 8 woodscrews, wood glue, sandpaper, stain/paint & poly - $12.
Slapped a pair together in about 10 minutes - then did a quick finish job just for my current speakers.

OK, didn't take my time on finishing these...just wanted to get them functional. Plan on doing the same thing once I get some X-LS. Will add some spikes & use rubber feet to decouple. Will have to go 1 size up w/ plaques to accommodate size of x-ls & have found crate about 1" longer(taller in this case) that will put tweeter at around 34" (I believe) once spikes & feet are added. This should be just about right once I'm slightly reclined. Not perfect, I know, but more than adequate & sturdier than I thought they may be.
Will take my time on finishing new ones!

Pretty nice.

I fabbed my own front stands, too, although mine need a good sanding/painting.

Don't believe everything on the Interwebz! A duck's quack DOES echo!
