I am building a pair of cabinets for my jbl 2206's & jbl 2246's that I've had for 8 months in their boxes...lol. I am building the cabinets out of solid mahogany; I would like to find a classy set of legs for them. If I find none I will incorporate them into the cabinet material.

Any suggestions would be helpful...

Hi
I am not sure what you are looking for in a cabinet leg but if you go to Lowes or Rockler I am sure you can find what you need.

I'm looking for a nice set of feet, would be a better term for the speaker to sit on. One in each corner, typically they are rubber. I am looking for something a bit more inspiring...

The outriggers are nice but I'm looking for something that sits under each corner rather than outside the perimeter of the cabinet.

Gotcha. Any specific height or thickness/diameter?

Do you have a Lathe?

I think a nice set of mahogany legs would be nice and different..If wood they could be turned into any decorative shape.. I would also cut a recess into the "Floor End" so that a rubber foot could be mostly hidden by the wood.

If you have a metal lathe I would turn a simple cylinder , with the same recess for a rubber foot, from 1" brass stock... You could either polish the brass or media blast it for a matte finish then clear coat it with lacquer.

I am going to make brass ones for mine :)

I took some 2x6 pieces of wood and had them angle cut to about 22 degrees (lengthwise) on 2 sides and then attached them to the bottom of the cabinets. the bottom of the feet are flush with the sides of the cabinet. They are like this when you are looking from the front...
