Looking for speaker stand suggestions for Polk LSIM 703 bookshelf speakers

Hi everyone. I'm trying to setup my surround speakers, polk lsim 703's. They are a decent sized bookshelf. They are pretty deep, approximately 8" wide by 14" deep. Probably around 30lbs or so. I'm ideally looking for something that is right around 2 feet tall with a solid sized base.

I have check parts express and the net for a bit but most of what I'm seeing is setup for smaller footprint speakers. Any suggestions on other places to look for pre-made ones? Worst come to worst, I guess I will diy them since I have a bit of experience with that. I'm only okay at that, so it would be preferable if I could find something professionally done to keep the wife happy with the looks.

Pay no attention to the "sale ends tonight" nonsense, they change the date daily.

Another option is to buy a ready made speaker like Sanus and simply make a new top plate out of MDF from Home Depot and paint it to match the rest of the stand.

Home Depot will cut to size if you want.

If you want nice, try making what you need out of MDF or plywood and get some veneer from Homecraft Veneer in Latrobe, Pa. (https://www.homecraftveneer.com/ ) Has real nice stuff even in ready to cut in 2x8 and 4x8 sheets in quite a few woods. Has glue already on it with a peel off backing and cuts with good shears. Real easy to work with.
