Re: Removable, floating center speaker "stand"

Regarding price, we have to consider that many of the products offered in their ebay store are cut offs and leftovers for from large jobs, and as such might have already been charged to another account but not part of the deliverables. But overall you are right, it seems to be pretty cheap, if we only look at the profiles -- The brackets and other pieces seem more expensive than they should be and can really start to add up when you need to build something. Anyway, good luck with whatever you are thinking about building!

I was pleasantly surprised to see the costs on the ebay front; thanks for the link . Aluminum prices must be down or something, because the last time I looked at aluminum plate for another project it was quite a bit more pricey.

Thanks. There are multiple manufactures/vendors/VARs including Parker, McMaster-Carr, Automation 4 Less, TSLOTS, TNUTZ, Grainger, etc. But one of the largest domestic manufacturers is 80/20: www.8020.net They are working on it but right now they don't really sell direct, but rather mostly through automation VARs which don't stock. So what's the use. However, they do have an ebay store where you can find most parts you'll often need: http://stores.ebay.com/8020-Inc-Gara...p2047675.l2568

Those shelves came out awesome! Where did you find the t-slot pieces and how much do they run?

Legos, Capsela, Erector, Robotix... if you could make something with it and if it could really hurt barfoot parents' feet in the middle of the night, I was all over it. :)

If you think Lego furniture is tacky, check out James May's full-size Lego house:

Anyway, the selves are done: http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...e-shelves.html

Versatile stuff for sure. And since I never grew out of Erector set, kind of addicting as well.

The shelves will be beech strips laminated together like many wood cutting boards are made. All the framing is now cut and mostly assembled. Tomorrow I'll be sanding an staining the wood. Hope to have a new thread here this weekend.
Gotcha, that is going to look great. I was a Lego guy myself, though I think Lego furniture or hardware is a little tacky.

Aluminum with laminated wood looks really cool together (not sure why, but it's a good combo). Add a link to your new thread when you put it up!

Re: Removable, floating center speaker "stand"

I like your use of the t-slot framing. That is some versatile stuff! I am looking forward to seeing how you use it in some other areas; get's those creative juices flowing. How are you planning on using beech in your next build?

Thanks for the kind words, gents.

Next project is shelves for the components in a similar niche to the left of the TV's niche. Will be using t-slotted framing again and beech.
